Alex,

very interesting. As usual, the questions - how tall, how old is your bonsai ? , what does it look like as a mature shrub or is it a tree ?

Need to learn.

Hmm, in the background, orchids, succulents ?, a barely seen other bonsai. Mother-in-laws tongue - variegated [ lash plant ] and windchime?

It is available on this side, but I have never seen it used, or as anything bigger than an unimpressive something in a 1 gallon pot.
Thanks for showing.
AND as usual - morrrrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Hi Ogie

The pot appears to be the perfect size.If you repot to a bigger pot it will de emphasise the size of the trunk. Personally i would go for a darker coloured pot, but that is just my opinion.
It's a beautiful tree and the trunk is amazing !!!

I disagree completely. I think a wider, more shallow pot would actually better emphasize the size of the trunk, and give the entire composition more stability. But that's just my opinion.

to ogie,
You have very nice maba. The trunk is so powerful. But I do not want to be rude,but base on the picture your lower branch seems not proportion to the trunk.
If i were you, I will let it grow in a bigger pot and control the upper branches to give way to the lower branch.. No question on the trunk it is magnificent. Maba is a slow grower, do not rush this kind of material. it is worth of waiting.

Ogie,

Treasure your Bantolinao (Maba Buxifolia). It is a very good tree. I agree with Ogi (Angel) Uyehara about the proportions of the branches. Letting the structure grow will only better the quality of your tree.

For those who are unfamiliar with the species, let me tell you that Ogie (alex) has done a great job in keeping this tree in excellent health. The are tricky to grow. By the way, no shallow pots on these.

Below, a picture of the related species we have in our island. Unlike yours, the trunk is reddish, but the roots are pitch black. The fruit is also black when ripe. These grow along the sea shore and are very difficult to root. We plant them in 100% river or mountain sand. Some of them have impressive dead wood and twisted trunks. This one was collected two years ago and will soon be placed in a huge training pot. I think it is more similar to Kamagong.

Jose Luis,

This is what I was thinking too - but I know nothing about this material. Is this too shallow to keep this tree happy?

Jose,

do you know the latin name for your plant ?
Any chance it begins with E ?
It looks familiar.

Khaimraj,

Some people call this Diospyros Caribea, but i really don't know. Others refer to it as Eurya, but again, this might be wrong. All i know is that the fruit is definitely a Persimmon. Firth the fruit is green, then it turns orange and finally black. I also have an old Diospyros Montana in my collection. The trunk is black and has very small leaves. The only draw-back is that the leaves are not as shiny and lustrous as the native one.

Russel,

These trees are very slow growers and tend to have a weak root system. Some often suffer from root rot. Belive it or not, sometimes shallow pots retain more water than deep pots. I think this has t do with capillary action between soil particles. Ample space promotes a better root system. With such a powerful trunk and once the ramification is well proportioned, this tree can handle a deep pot very well. I never plant mine directly onto big pots. I use a larger than normal pot to establish the root column and then place it in an oversized pot.

Kind regards,

Jose

I agree totally Russell a shallower pot would emphasise the trunk. But the original question was " is this tree under potted " so i was stating that a bigger pot that was the same depth would de emphasise the trunk. I presumed that Ogies friends were suggesting a bigger pot in length of either the same depth or deeper, by saying that it was under potted.
But i still think that the tree is not under potted.

Vic

Wonderful tree thank's for sharing. I too agree on a larger shallower pot but that may change once styled.
