Which pot is more suitable

Post  xuan le on Tue Mar 08, 2011 4:08 pm

I acquired this Satsuki last Summer, but I don't like much the pot because of its thickness. I think about transplanting it in this rectangular japanese pot.
I like to hear your opinion about this
Thank you in advance
Regards

How do you see the tree, masculine or feminine? Round is feminine, square is masculine.

I think niether pot. I like the oval, but it seems too ordinary, I also like the rectangular pot, but not for this tree. What I do see in my mind's eye is an oval with the more interesting style of the rectangular pot. I hope this makes some sense.

Thanks Neil, Billy and Mike.
To Billy I see the tree rather feminine but the actual pot looks too cheap.
Anyone with a virtual please.

I would agree that the current pot looks like a heavy Chinese pot, you can surely find a lighter, much more expensive Japanese pot. Check out bonsaimonk.com.

Check out this pot from bonsaimonk.com
22" Tokoname Pot # 23F20
I think it will help you appreciate the pot the tree is in.

I'd rather see an azalea in a more decorative pot -- of a color that goes well with the flowers.

I don't know the variety of it, just acquired it last Summer after the flowers were gone, but whatever the color is the tree looks good, the leaves are small so I bought it.

The rectangular pot is ok, but a little heavy. It's the feet, they make the pot look very "solid", and your pretty satsuki needs something lighter. I'd wait to see the flowers before I made any decissions other than shape.

Hi Xuan Le
Nice tree,but I think it needs an oval glazed pot and if you are not going to be showing it yet I would wait until you see the colour of the flowers before you decide on the colour of the pot.

Oval and slightly longer is OK. Shallower is not. Azalea need deeper pots for health.

Thanks everybody.
I will keep looking for the pot in Spring bonsai show (or shows) and the color of the coming bloom may help too.
