Post  rexman on Sun Dec 05, 2010 3:03 pm

this was posted as a "problem" tree in bonsai questions and was wired and trimmed last august. i'm letting it grow for a while before another restyling. I'd like to get some suggestions though on how to improve this tree. thanks all!

before the august trim/wire

Cascade is nice, with cascading branch a bit lower. I am just not sure if the straight part of the trunk works out well. Neutral

Tilting the tree up a bit is the alternative and basically a continuation of rexman's styling:







or a little taller as it is now:

Dorothy, your virtuals are wonderful and honestly, I think that's what I will pursue. I hope the tree will resemble the virtuals somehow in the future. I'll keep this thread and perhaps post a progression picture after 2 years!

Hi Pong and Jun, hmmn your ideas are excellent too but I'd like to try the above first.

john and hirow, my idea above. thanks for your comments.

Nice virtuals Dorothy. I would try some advanced bending techniques to put some movement into the upper trunk line and then let it fill out. Good luck with it.

No heavy bending on pemphis!!!! It is extremely brittle...

updates, our crazy spitz chased an alley cat who used the pot to launch himself to the wall and breaking the pot and a big branch in the process Mad



I only have this pot available and it should do for now. No more cascade though, upright is the way, I think. I will just let it grow for a few months then decide on what to do.

The last photo looks good Rex.

I think you should develop that angle. any wider pot or pail will do. so that roots can develop sideways too. If you grow the phempis in that pot you'll have trouble later on on your repot, roots are sensitive and any breakage of major roots will result in some dieback of branches. or else you got to break that pot too.

Hi Rexman,

Maybe the Pemphis was destined to be a semi cascade. Here is a poor quality Vert and I hope you get the idea....

jun, i agree with the need to replace the pot, can you recommend a good place to buy various pots?

john, yeah i think upright is the way to go now (i hope no more disturbances on the growing/training) the lasge jin is still at the back. i'll try to fit it in a new pot then figure out how much should be removed.

ravi, thanks for the suggestion but i'll go upright for now.

thanks all for your constructive comments cheers

For imported pot, though limited, visit manila seedling bank 2000.

for ordinary concrete pot same area.
