Hi,

I need your help. Smile I have no ideas for the future pot for my scots pine. If you have any suggestions, please share them. Virtuals are also welcome.

Virtuals will be easier if we can see the entire tree, from the front, including the base (you may have to cut down that current pot or lift the tree during the photo) against a fairly even background -- and white isn't the best, since it tends to make the bonsai a silhouette.

That said, I'm not good enough in the virtual world to do the job, but I know many others are.

Hi Nik,
Cutting the rim of the nursery pot will make it "harder" to carry the tree, but you will have the benefit of seeing all sorts of possibilities for the planting angles for this tree. Your tree looks like it has potential to be an informal upright, semi, or a full cascade. A stone bowl or crescent might work. Cut the container and please show us various sides of the tree.
BTW, this looks like a great tree!
Best,
Todd

Here's a couple of pots to consider.

A basic unglazed



Or a modern pot from Horst Heinzlreiter (color and dimensions changed in the virtual a bit).

Thanks Rob. I really like the first one. And your vision of the foilage looks great too. I will probably work in that way in the future.
