A RAFT OUT OF PROPORTION....IMPRESSIVE!!!!!!!

Post  Savvas P. on Sat May 12, 2012 5:12 pm

I saw this one 4 months ago and when i showed it to Greg,he said "forget it,you are crazy,its too big".I forgot it until today....Its big,its impressive but....dont laugh guys.....it was so easy to dig out,but so heavy to carry down from the mountain though......

As you can see its full of healthy roots,all the old soil is washed away and needed to make some improvisations to fit it in a pot...i actualy used two to fit it in....Its length is 90cm and is 30cm wide.... Smile Smile

Well... What more to Say Shocked

Hmm .... its huge, has a great base, to many trunks to play around. A few straight trunks to go.
You need a wooden growing box a.s.a.p.
Not my style of tree but for sure is a great one.
There is one more option with this tree, split it and share the parts with friends Cool

The base is impressive, but it will take you a lifetime to create a bonsai from it, since you will have to start from scratch and create several trunks and branches...........

When are u planning to start creating the bonsai?

You can start saving money for a commissioned pot…. it will take a few good years until the tree is almost ready for one, so get yourself a piggy bank  Smile  Smile  Smile
