Shohin Brazilian Raintree

Post  Sam Ogranaja on Thu Aug 18, 2011 2:46 am

This little guy is only 4 inches tall. I'm training it in a Pierneef style.

Front

Rear

I put wound dressing on that branch that was cut in the rear. Hoping to pot it next year in this pot by Rob Addonizio. Can anyone here do a quick virtual? Smile Maybe Dorothy???? LOL

The pot I plan to use.

Have a great week everyone!!!!

I may not know a lot in the terms of bonsai, but I think that is a pretty terrific little tree. Smile Good job!

Awesome little tree. You don't see many small BRT's. I'm getting ready to start a bunch of cuttings from my tree this weekend and I definitely have intentions of trying some smaller sized trees out. Keep us updated with pics.

Their cuts/wounds heal pretty quickly but keep it in the growing container until they do.

Thank you Lazaro. I definitely plan on keeping it in this container until it's all done healing even if that takes me into 2014. This tree could have been further along the branch structure but I wanted to start healing some of the big wounds. One of the major wounds is about 80 percent closed up from when the branch was cut off in mid June. Actually the wound in the rear of the tree without wound dressing grew from completely non-existent a little over a foot in about four weeks. This tree grows so fast it's incredible. I thought my trident grew fast but it has nothing on this tree. It's been cut back multiple times. Here are some pictures of when I initially got it from Wigert's.

Thank you for all the positive comments everybody. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who thought this little guy was pretty cool. I was really surprised at the quality of stock that Erik Wigert had. It broke down between this and another one and I should have bought them both.









Thank you again everyone for the comments. I truly appreciate it!!! I will definitely update again with progression pictures.
Have a great weekend!!!
Sam

Your raintree, ready to be shown in a modified Erik Križovenský container ( I could not find a suitable pot, Erik, so I took one of your magnificent slab containers and adjusted it to fit the tree, hope you don't mind, my friend?). I like your pot, Sam, just not for that tree. I also was trying to avoid to create a "flat on a flat". So this modified slab has some elevation, like a hand perhaps.. Very Happy

I don't know how you do that, but you're frigging awesome!!!! I guess when I see the virtuals the pot seems too shiny maybe. But in person it doesn't look that bad. Oh well, I've got time to figure it out. Erik's pots are AMAZING!!! His attention to detail is second to none. If he ever made a slab this small I don't think it would cost that much to ship it. What do you say Erik??? LOL
Dorothy, as always....YOU ROCK!!!
Thank you so much for taking the time.
Have a great weekend everyone!!!

This little guy suffered from quite a bit of die-back that I am still trying to heal. I'll try to post a picture later. I potted him into a larger pot to grow freely and he seems to be recovering very well. My styling was set back for now.

Note to others with Raintrees. It's important to leave a stub for die-back everywhere, even the roots. Always cut to a node.

Have a great week!!!

That is indeed crucial. Especially when growing a small size like yours. I am working on this shohin flattop since quite some time now. I trimmed it back and defoliated a week ago. This pic is from last year:



Best,
Dorothy

Where did you get that rain tree from Dorothy? I've been looking for a nursery that has good BRT stock to style into a pierneef or flat top style. I was thinking wigerts but his prices seem a bit too high to me..

I've been inspired to do a shohin pierneef of my own.. Now all I need is some more branching on the right side and I'll be golden.

This is a pretty old branch cutting. I had a full grown Raintree (sold now) that was younger than the little guy:



Interestingly both trees, the little guy and the full grown one, came from the same mother tree.

Best,
Dorothy

Dorothy,
Fantastic tree!
Kaya that branch going up you chopped is needed to create the center and the top of the crown. Pierneef is a very confusing style. Twisted Evil

It's a work in progress Neli, a branch that small can easily be regrown. This is going to be more of a flat top anyways.
