Ulmus Parvifolia - Yatsubusa - the love / the pain

Post  Khaimraj Seepersad on Mon Sep 27, 2010 12:19 pm

Morning to All,

I have a great love for Elms, fortunately, the Southern Chinese Elms, the Seiju, the Catlin and the yatsubusa will grow down here. Touching my roots if you wish. Laughing

The yatsubusa seen here is about 8 years old and just around February was put into a pot to restore the roots. It was grown in a quart of soil.
Density of leaf and high twigging are an asset, but if you allow a branch to entend more than 6 inches, the fine twigging will be lost. At the same time the trunk takes forever to thicken, maybe never.
I have been down this path once before and the mame' lost all of the fine twigs with time and I lost interest in the effort. The real difference between a living thing and an oil painting for example.

I am also not one for showing photographs of what once was, nor will I harm a tree, I won't remove to obtain jin etc. Personal belief, not extended to anyone else.

This specimen will probably just develop fat branches in relation to the twigs, so enjoy it for what it is and in the now. More examples will follow.
The best situation is probably example 3 -> go large.

About 4 inches tall and with a few views. Soil is my standard mix, next year mame' mix. Thinned out for the photograph
Enjoy and feel free to comment - yay or nay.

The top - to show that I try to give all my trees volume.

This was gift to me in 08, about 7 inches tall and in a favourite shape of pot for me.
Much work to go.

My attempt to get a larger trunk - yeah right, this after 10 years, 1 inch plus thick and was grown in a plant trough. It was originally over 8 feet tall or rather leaning.
The lower branch is almost 4 feet long.

This tree eats soil, as you may notice in the pot. The soil level was above the rim of the plastic grow pot and domed.
The heart also somehow became hollow, now filled.

To dream the impossible dream ----- and I have three such efforts going on. I love a challenge.
Enjoy.
