PREMNA ON ROCK

Post  Robert Steven on Tue Dec 06, 2011 2:54 am

This is among the very rare Premna collected with the rock. I especially like the dead branch in the middle which play as a "third bridging element" and give a nice accentuation. Enjoying it...





Ideal ramification with reduced leaves size will be obtained within 3 years...

hi Robert - in your mission book you say you have exported premna to many countries, including some in Europe. Do they post well as a trunk before the branches are formed Laughing Laughing Laughing I live in Britains mildest area so i feel the tree would be fine outside for most of the year and i can make an indoor tropical summer with some nice big lights in the winter.

thanks in advance for any information Wink

Hi Marcus,

They are growing well in southern USA and Latin America, also in South Africa, but I don't have the information form the one in Italy.

Another nice material Robert.

Questions from a student
- Is it necessary for the tree at this stage to put it in a very shallow and small pot? There were frequent suggestions here in the
forum to plant a tree in such stage to put it in a huge planting box or container.
-Will a big container slowdown the leaf reduction of most tropical species?
-Is such technique applicable only for our tropical climate and as such, is not applicable for tropicals in the colder climate


regards,
jun study

Hi Jun,

Yes, normally we need a large training pot to have a quicker growth; but I am not worried with Premna because they grow so quick in our climate and we need to repot, roots prunning every 6 months, so with this pot, there will be only few months difference and no effect on the leaves reduction.

But ofcourse if you need to grow a very thick branch, then I'd suggest to put them on the large training pot.

Pongsatorn,

Your idea is great and not worse than mine, but it's just because I don't want to make windswept. The branch in the middle is dead and I will turn into deadwood; then I will arrange the lower foliation in such a way to fill the gap. Thanks !
