This tree has been sitting in my bank for about three years. It has some interesting twists, and some very difficult on old wood that made him a compromising puzzle to find the best forward and tilt angles.
The first year was planted in any way, which turned out to be upright in a box of pumice for the roots to grow again. Who had just been picked up. Next year I put in a box like a waterfall to let it grow strength and see it that way. Well, eventually he did not agree with myself and potted up this spring as an upright again. I imagine that the tree is getting dizzy.
This is a photo essay style of it-
I liked working on this tree. the rigidity of the structure of the old branches basic, it did not allow the usual harmonies to be imposed on them. And I have left the tree more or less as it was. I think that in the future a pattern of very interesting flip pads foliage could develop, almost like water coming down a waterfall over rocks an irregular pattern.
