Nothofagus from Chile

Post  Gabriel on Thu Jan 22, 2009 4:38 am

Hello everybody:

I would like to show all of you one of my Ñirres (Nothofagus antarctica) in training for 4 years. Ñirres are very good material but it is very dificult to found a good speciment.
It is 12 cms hight from de rim of the pot and 19 cm long

Your comments are welcome.

Regards

I love Nothofagus antactica. Its bark is especially attractive. Nice little tree.

Lovely, but I'd get the moss off the trunk, unless you are leaving it on to age the bark?

Kev.
Your are right. The moss on the trunk is for trying to give more age on the bark. Here, in southern Chile, winters and rains are very long (8 months aprox.) and that makes that moss grows all around the tree and on its bark to. That´s a graet idea to give some "patagonian-naturalitic" look to my little Notho... Wink
Next repoting I will clean de bark.

Thanks for your comment.

On a recent trip to Chile I was very impressed with the Nothofagus. It has great bark, small leaves and branches that have natural movement. In many ways it reminds me of the Korean Hornbeam.
Nicely done.
