Nice stump! I don't have any suggestions since I am very new to bonsai, but I'm glad to see people working with this species. Duranta is very very common in landscape where I live (Malaysia), which means good availability of stock material. I wonder if you (or anyone else) have any links to mature duranta bonsais? I'm attaching my first attempt, which I just dug two weeks ago, at least so there is a bit more about this species on the forum.




Does the deadwood preserve well? I cannot find lime sulfur where I am, so I don't know if it is recommended to create exposed deadwood on the chopped trunk or to hollow it out instead. What is your plan for the dead wood at the top of your tree?

I like the trunk, I would let it grow for a season, let branches sprout, see what forms to work with in the future. That's all I'd do for the moment. You have nice movement in the trunk, the tree definitely has potential.

I have never grown Duranta, my climate is too cold for them outdoors and no room indoors.

Using the Forum's search function, I found the following threads that could give you species specific ideas:

As Iris mentioned, Duranta is in the Verbena family, along with Lantana, the horticulture will likely be similar, if you can't find good information elsewhere.

I find that tree design is a combination of the tree and you. I agree that some time is needed for this tree. Save the dead wood until you are sure about it (it's hard to grow back). As the tree grows try ad pick some new growth to become the new trunk line and let it grow unhindered to gain thickness. Other than that, water it, fertilize it, trim it and enjoy the process.
