Friends I have collected this plant to make a rescue in 2009, I believed would not survive because he had just been poison in the last place, where it was destroyed by agricultural machinery ....
She was about 2 meters and was reduced to about 60cm with the cutting machine, so I reversed the cuts and collected the plant ...




After 1 year of slow growth or no left 20 cm of branches on behalf of more than 30 worms that were destroying susbtrato, I decided to make a total exchange of this substrate ......
Using a piece of red earth
1 part of crushed
2 parts coarse sand river
2 parts of organic matter ....

So she said so in two months ....

Where the first pruning was done to gain more secuncarios branches, and its trunk was brushed .....

It was another year of low-growing free bench, where became a veritable forest .....
Unfortunately it did not take photos with large branches, but the result was the thickening of the branches primaries ....
Right at the base had a root that was above the others and very thin, so I decided to withdraw ...


One of the dead branches tbm was removed, but still no work has been done to refine the cut ...


I've been posting this photo with Google translator, sorry for the lack of English, but I will answer and asking for opinions on the conduct of this plant to me that this is about 3 years .....

Diego,

This is a very nice material, I like the base of the tree (nebari). It got a powerful image. I hope somebody can provide some sketch or virt for your tree. Virtuals are becoming rare these days, Only Pavel and and very few people are helping with virts lately and designs as well. as more and more people prefered now to watched or engaged in debates (mostly unfruitful) Evil or Very Mad , So be have patience my friend if you need help with the design.

....and welcome to the forum.


regards,
jun Smile

Thanks buddy, I'll be waiting for someone to help me with the project.
GROWTH The plant you a very fast due to the tropical climate of the region where I am, so I have to prune constantly to keep this design which is not pleasant at the time


I made a more refined look ..



Hard to get to this point because of defoliation has many thorns ..

Were removed to form a scar grossly deformed, for better naturalizade

Retrieved cut the rest of the collection ....


End result, now will grow free for 5 months in healing cuts was used folder .

Hi again.

It seems that you are not wiring your tree. It can also be made that way (clip and grow) but it would be more helpful if you let the tree gain thicker branch then cut it back short again and repeat the process continuously, then you'll gain tapering branch. If you really don't want to wire the branches you could also use guy wire to pull the branches in ythe desired direction. I am saying this because based on the photos the branches are going everywhere and IMHO is not guided, which might result in future problem.

regards,
jun Smile

Yes friend, I did not even direction of the branches, with Arramada as the plant was growing free, and has been pruned to ganahr secondary branches, the second step now is the education of gallhos but as its growth is very strong, was unable to direct the plant ..

Interesting tree, never heard of it and little to be found on the internet, but any tree named "White Boy" deserves some work. Laughing

I'd try to get the main branches growing downward now with wire and hard pruning. It seems to be a fast (tropical?) grower - so the development should go relatively quickly. The leaves are big and seem to be compound so I'd suggest showing it defoliated. The roots need to be tapered - probably by carving. The thorns look huge - yikes.

Maybe in a few years....

Virtual look good friend, its growth is very fast because it is a tropical ...
The idea of the design is great, I liked much of his vision and believe that in less than three years you've finished because its growth is about 3 times higher that of a one Ficus,

Congratulations Diego, your plant is fantastic.
I love the several species of Sebastiania, but i prefer S. schottiana. S. brasiliensis, and the globular plants of Ouro Branco (MG), no identificated.

Chaddad Hello friend thank you for words, I do not know the particular species and even confused it with the popularly known here in the region with Shoemaker, until you see the posting of another friend of the forum showing the evolution of one of your plants when I find that it was my one Braquilho ..

Hello amiigos after 1 month of free growth, I have to remove the Arramada it is marked all the branches, the plant has grown rapidly because of the rich organic fertilizer and climate favorable at this time of year in the region, it rains almost every days with temperatures between 30 ° and 40 ° ..
