John,

thanks. im glad you like my new composition. i was thinking of putting this in a wide and long but shallow pot then pull some of the roots down the rock and put moss on top of the wide pot base...penjing landscape. what do you think?

Jun,
I think this tree looks much better on this rock than the one in your other post. The other stone stole the show a bit to much. I think the idea of a shallow pot beneath with roots coming down is an interesting idea and could work quite well, although it looks great as it stands. I truly enjoy all of your posts and interesting ideas for planting. Keep up the good work and keep the pics coming.

Todd (another one)

Jun, I like the match! They compliment each other. This rock looks like a giant clam-creature; I see eyes, nose, mouth, and the tree looks like horns or spines coming out of the top of its head. I think the idea of the tree with aerial roots and mosses and other planting will create a great tree on top of a cave landscape. Great idea! cheers You da man! thumbs up

re pot for todd and baynan

Post  moyogijohn on Sun Oct 03, 2010 2:41 am

OK JUN,,You ask what i thought... i like the tree in the rock,i do think it is too deep because the base is covered with soil..the idea of a pot under the rock with roots comming down sounds great ..that would bring the base of tree up so it can be seen..this is only my opion but i would like for you to do it in that way.it would also be something different since you are able to make changes anytime...think about it ......let us know ok????good luck good work...john

update on banyan

Post  Guest on Tue Dec 07, 2010 12:23 pm

Hi IBC. the tree is holding on to the rock...

this is my feeder plastic bag tied to the rock and tree, filled with yummy goodies for the tree and roots I needed... I got bad experience with pot feeder before and this is my practical solution...wont topple over.






the plastic bag temporarily removed. will be put in place again later. got the good roots I intended to grow and the big root clasping well to the rock pot..

regards,
jun

Thanks Todd,

a few more months and the design would almost be complete.

...some of my own process are crude, but as long as it works I'm fine with it. Smile

Great tree Jun. This might be a dumb question, but how does one repot and trim the roots of a tree that is physically attached to the pot it is in? Thanks!

No, john. you are making lot of sense. you want to see more of the tree base and the nebari.
at this point the base of the tree and most of the nebari is buried under the soil and sphagnum moss. eventually I'll remove the top soil when the root spreads on top of the rock. keeping the base moist will develop more roots on top.

Ryan,
thanks.
that was not a dumb question, it's the opposite of it.

this tree wont be re potted at all. If it is necessary to removed roots it is only because it will affect the overall composition, like roots engulfing the whole rock pot. other than for aesthetic purposes the tree roots will remain attached to the rock... for the rest of it's life. the more roots for banyan the happier the tree will be, they get nutrients on the rock not from the soil medium, with liquid fertilizer of course.

jun

Hi Jun,

Great to see another of your creative works of Art. I was looking at the progression images and good progress so far. However when I see that the bunch of roots cascading down from the rock being placed on the side and not in the front is where I wanted to know your final plan.

The virtual (badly done as usual) is what I thought might be one option where the roots are cascading down in the FRONT giving the feeling of a ROOT WATERFALL or should I call it ROOTFALL or a curtain of cascading roots. Do let me know what you think.



Regards
Ravi
