Yangya (terminalia fontalia)

Post  rexman on Sat Oct 09, 2010 6:50 am

I transfered here from "questions" section...

-----------------

i love this site with very active members!

i'm fairly new to this hobby but really hooked. and now this forum, i can learn a lot more and do more.

my tree material is about 6 months on the pot and i'm just letting it grow wildly as i don't know how it should look like yet. It is about 30" tall. can anybody help me with suggestions? It'd be good to have pictures back with drawings/edits of the "future" look.

Thanks a lot!

front (i think)

Rex,
Hi!
Its better for the tree if you would plant it first in a big container, a much bigger than what you tree has now. it will grow faster (branches). then let it grow wild for 4 to 6 months. by then youl have bigger branches choose from.
Yangya grows very fast. I hope my simple quick sketch below will help you. im not sure though about the condition of your nebari...i hope its good.




regards,
jun Smile study

Rex,

Welcome. I would ask for an image of this shrub / tree ? as a mature shrub / tree ? before trying to offer any suggestions.

Additionally I would ask you to show me other trees you have in training or trained.

Also what is that soil mix - just curious ?
Until.

Khaimraj,

Hi.

since i am on line at the moment, I hope you wont mind. may I answer some of your queries regarding Rex tree.
...and since Rex told us he is new with bonsai, I would assume he had not trained/ nearly completed that is, a bonsai tree and would also be his reason for asking basic guide in forming his tree (just my guess).

This is a tree (not shurb or bush)- reaching height more than 8 meters in the wild.
very fast grower tree.
As I can see from the photo- the soil medium is a river sand (correct me later Rex if im wrong) commonly used here in the Philippines.
Wood type- not very hard, prone to rotting. so shari is not advisable

one of the commonly used tree medium in the Philippines

As for the leaves its naturally small. photo below of yangya leaves.



A yangya nearing completion.




still in the big pot


another yangya in training, repoted in smaller pot 5 months ago.

This one too in training...as you can see this tree is capable of acquiring other form other than the typical trunk of some trees.

Hey Jun,

thanks a million for the information, and what might I ask is the typical shape of this tree ?
Any pictures of a tree in the wild ?

The leaves look very similar to the privet's.

How long does it take for the trunk to reach that size ?

Are seeds small, postable ?

Anyhow, you guys are very fortunate to have such material to work with.

And as usual, beautiful trees, beautiful work Jun.
Sorry, more questions.

Hi Khaimraj,

thanks for the compliment I appreciate it.

Got some photo of the tree in the wild, from my old file...just cant find it at the moment.
leaves are almost similar to privet, but naturally smaller.
Typically the trunk size grew around 20 to 25 years to reached this size (same size as Rex tree) depending on the condition on the tree's habitat.
Sorry about the seeds my friend. no factual data on that.

regards,
jun Smile

sir from my experience from my past yang ya soil mix is 70% riversand 30 percent cow dung. And the training container is oversize so the roots may grow faster.
