Twisted pistacia lentiscus

Post  Marija Hajdic on Sun Aug 15, 2010 9:40 pm

This tree was collected last year, and styled this afternoon. We are thinking about what type of pot ... so here are 2 virtuals, one with standard and another with stone-like pot. I hope we will find something suitable soon.

More photos of development are on blog:

First pic. Pretty tree. Is that how it looks now or how you hope it will look?

OK. Thanks. Don't have time for blogs, gotta do bonsai instead. Very nice tree.

The texture of the stone-like pots steals the show of the excellent trunk's bark, if I may say.... Embarassed

I am always trying to look on bonsai like unit form. I don't think that pot and tree are separate things. I don't wont to bother with details.

A unit of course!
But on the other hand...., there is always a protagonist sunny

I feel the first pot is better as it makes a more dramatic contrast with the complex trunk. The natural rock pot just blends in with the trunk and hides the wildness of the amazing trunk. Maybe a simpler more angular and slightly larger pot would be even better.

The tree has a strong horizontal component and needs a wider shallow pot to go with that.

I'm no good at verts but I agree with Rob that a pot works best.......how about a dry creek bed finish pot?
Really great material.

I agree on the pot with Rob. It´s just stuning how quickly you are able to train decently looking crown out of a stump, impossible in our central european climate, or doable just with very limited number of species Neutral . I like your choice of keeping the secondary trunk where many bonsaists would carve an uro. Very natural looking tree, I am curious how it will look in another 2 years, uff, my congratulations!

Pistacia has pinnately compound leaf so crown silhouette quickly looks full, but like other species for maturity can be only reached by time.
I agree with you on your opinion about secondary thunk, it is very important in this composition.

Thanks you and others for comments! Smile
