Arz 002 - Guajuvira

Post  Arzivenko on Thu Sep 09, 2010 11:20 pm

Hello, I am a nobody, trying to make bonsai in southern Brazil.
Humbly, I bring a tree to your assessment and evaluation.


A guajuvira (Patagonula americana), collected in 2007, in training, by me, for one and a half year.

Winter leaves:


Defoliated, cuted and wired:

Hi Arzivenko, anybody that is making Bonsai, is not, a nobody.
I like your tree and the pot that it is in. What does the other side look like?
It can be best to show your tree from many sides, someone may see something that may improve your tree.

I had a tree that looked a lot like your second photo. It looked that way for 3 years, I finally decided it was dead Twisted Evil and threw it in the compost pile!

I think your tree looks great. Keep working on it.

Arzivenko,

Man! how can you say you are a nobody...you are an artist. a rare breed.

IMHO. a twin trunk is better. just the left and right trunk will do. at least from the photo.

regards,
jun

kenduncan, i chose this side becouse it has a radial nebari. The back side is not so good. This is a concrete training pot, by the way.

Jay, sure i will, soon i make the progress report.

jun, i will think about it. I like to think that a thunder bolt hit the main trunk, and it crashed to right.

VERY nice tree--and please do NOT make a twin trunk out of it.

I'd never heard of this tree, so looked it up. It appears to be a well-known timber source in the southern hemispehre.

Has yours bloomed yet?

Beautiful tree Arzivenko. The hallow trunk in the middle looks great. I'm with Jim, triple trunk looks fine to me, but I'm only a beginner =).

The triple trunk, with good but complimentary variation in size and shapes, looks marvellous to me and is far less common than a twin trunk. Keep up the excellent work.

Arzivenko,

it's attractive. I don't know the branching capacity of this tree, and would have liked to see the sides and the back, but instinct, suggests, if this is the only tree you have of this type in your collection, get a young seedling and do all the test work on that.

I would have liked to see fewer branchlets near the cavities and a bit more fine branching at the top, more space for the birds to pass through.
Also do those cavities collect water ? wood water durable ? how old /mature is the wood on your specimen ?

The information on the wood says furniture, handtools, general boatbuilding.

Hope to see you around more often.

Hi Arzi; congratulations!!
beautiful plant and great pictures. Especially the second photo and third pictures show a beautiful "Naturalistic" style.
Best regards.
