Shohin shimpaku

Post  Nik Rozman on Wed Apr 13, 2011 10:19 pm

Here is another juniper I would like to show you. I bought it in autumn 2008.



Right away I put it into a bigger pot (no harm to the roots was done) and just left it grow freely for a year. After that year I had this:



Styling came next. (autumn 2009)



And in spring 2010 it went into a better pot.



But still the search for the perfect pot went on. Untill I found the One in Pragh.
And the last image of the finished tree. You can also notice how denser it hot since the first styling.

I like the new pot Nik. Works well with the horizontal design. IMHO,it will will better without the added plant on the left side of the pot. eyes can get distracted on which plant to look at...guess it is just too far from the tree. but then again, it is just a matter of taste.

I don't know. Without it the pot seemed too big and prevailed over the whole design. It'll stay for now. Wink

Hi Nik
We have a saying in the UK "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" and to my eyes once the crown and pads have developed you will have a beautiful semi- cascade Shohin
Congratulations Bob

I love when someone takes a tree that is ok as a potential upright, flips it on its side into a semi-cascade and suddenly its an "ah -Ha" moment and from thence into beauty.

the tenticle is funky, If you could somehow shorten it to bring it just a bit more into and part of the foliage triangle of the whole tree I would be more likely to appreciate its addition to the composition and less likely to follow its long line away from the tree I want to be admiring. But tenticles are in the eye of the beholder.
