biggest literati

Post  Guest on Sun Jan 30, 2011 3:04 pm

Hi good people of IBC,
A week ago a friend of mine sent me text message giving away some of his last trees, and without hesitation i sent my crew right away to pick up some trees even at night... for a very low cost, this is now my biggest literati material, got it for $30.

the base...


the trunk...



















to give you the scale of this new "toy" its me standing at 5' 9" in ht...after a couple bottles of beer.




We worked til 9pm arranging the nursery to accommodate the new big guys.
As payback (plus OT pay of course) for my ever hardworking and harden drinker guys...free beer, stewed goat, grilled fish and Karaoke 'til sunday morning.



regards,

Jun,

Great material you have there... It is also interesting to think what you might do with it... Keeping fingers crossed for now. Do share pics once you give it your styling touch...

And by the way, a very impressive band of people you have got having the dinner and free beer. And since you did not mention sharing the "MATADOR BRANDY" with them I presume you are keeping it all for yourself Very Happy

This friend of yours is a collector? A merchant? A yamadori hunter?.... if I may ask this question.
You had mentioned a similar case in the past if I am correct..., or I cannot remember right?
Is this the same guy? Smile

You are right Alexandra. it is the same Guy...needs more space for his fighting cocks/chicken.the tree above is not in its full health strength because of neglect...see some moss growing on the trunk? but it can easily recover with proper love and care.

Jun, what part of the Philippines are you located in? My wife is from Gingoog City, in Misamis Oriental. We grow a lot of bougainvillea and other tropical bonsais here because they remind her of home.

big murraya P.-"the flame"

Post  Guest on Mon Jan 31, 2011 10:03 pm

Hi guys. here is the other tree.
The huge murraya P.
with multiple trunks like a flame...














Note and disclaimer: the other trees in the background and foreground are not mine...photos were taken several months ago.
when the time is right I'll reduce the height of this tree to just a couple of inches above 1 meter.

Hi Jun,
Will you be able to increase the vigor of the large literati in the current pot? Or, will you grow it in a larger pot? By the way, awesome score, dude!
Best, Todd ThumbsUp

thanks Todd.

It just needs lot of sunshine and fertilizer.
at this current stage it is not advisable to do something beneath the soil, this specie is so sensitive specially the roots.
