Yamadori Shimpaku style juniper

bonsai general - 28 views



Some years ago

this juniper was imported from Japan. It was weak for quite some time and this year shows just enough energy to make styling an option. The long shoots, cut once already this year, so it really could have carved out a little earlier.

Before the work. Pot is a Yamaki, but not the final, being too big and the wrong way.

After cleaning the bark and shari, and style. The front is shifted slightly to the left for better movement of the trunk, and then the whole tree leans to the right. He stood at this angle in the next transplant. The pot for this bunjin could be a simple round with a outflared lip, or perhaps a way ‘Moko’.
