pot for a suber

Post  Viriato Oliveira on Sat Sep 18, 2010 11:18 pm

Hi everybody

This is for now the result of 6 years of cultivation and pruning and let grow the branches of this suber.

When I collect this tree, it haven't any branches at all.

It was a great challenge for me transform this uninteresting piece of hood in a graceful and powerful tree.
all the work on the dead wood and in the branches it like a great reward for me when I see the tree improving your design and wealthy.

and now it needs a pot to complete is journey...I'm open to suggestions.

what do you think?






this was the last work I made on it









all the guys who helped working on this and other tree of mine...resting with a good meal...from the left to right,
me, Pedro, Gustavo, João Pires and Nuno.





best regards

I like a lot!!!

the negative relief combine perfectly with the hole in the dead wood...is a strong candidate to shelter the roots of this suber.

I like the colour to!

I like that pot too.

Here are three I pulled off a shelf for you to consider, more simple than Ed's but the depth works with the mass of your tree. The first 2 are Japanese and last Chinese. Sorry I can't do virtuals.

Stunning tree Viriato!!!!!!!!!!

I like your tree very much. If the tree is mine I would put it in some elegant oval pot, like on these two virtuals.
Colour must be different in better harmony with the tree, of course!

Very Happy sweet tree! im not sure how to virtually put the pot on the tree as all of you do^^ I would choose a pot that does not take the eye away from the tree...maybe a plain tokaname with greyish color and rectangular with a wide rim maybe...hehe i wish i could learn to paste the pot to the tree picture! Smile

Thanks jie, it has been interesting to see other's choices.

That's why I posted the 3 pots earlier. I'm not saying they are the best, just 3 I had to choose from. I think those textured pots are distracting and take away from this tree. Too matchy-matchy for my eye. Simple and elegant - but not common and ordinary - are what's going to do this tree justice.

I everybody

Klaudia & Martin

I like your first option...is one to consider!

but I agree to with Russell and jie.


I need to think to the concrete sense I gone put in the tree...in some way his personality.And the pot is 50% off his personality.


thanks all for the important help, on a journey that is take out the best possible of a good tree like this one. cheers

Completely agree with Russell. The pot should be complimenting/supporting the tree....this is what allows the best the tree has to offer to come out. Simplicity is best.

I am not a fan of textured pots either.

Hi Viriato,

Sorry, but I think this pot doesn't fit this tree at all. It is the same widht as the crown and it does not look right. I would plant it into an unglazed, wider and about 1/3 lower pot.
My opinion.
