My azalea shohin was long for transplantation. I wanted to change the angle of the tree for some time as the main branch was too large to bend and exposed roots were pointing almost straight up. Tilting the tree would approximate bending down the main branch and the trunk would give better movement to the left.

The roots extracted directly from the rootwork pot and was a simple task.

I chose a slightly larger pot the tree would be less likely to dry in summer.
Instead of simply tilting the tree on the left when repotted, I leaned forward slightly and turn slightly to the left . I was surprised by the subtle difference of this fact. Boon and I went back and forth over the exact angle before making the decision, but I’m happy with the result.
