Jade tree

Post  wildfig on Wed Dec 19, 2012 9:47 pm

On this cold and miserable evening I decided to restyle my jade tree.
It was growing in a stone container with some cacti but it got too big and I removed it.
On observing it I got the idea that it can become a bonsai.
This is the tree after basic branch pruning and growing in a bonsai pot for 2 years.

I am not "into" succulents for bonsai, but this does not mean that i hate them Smile

I feel that the lower branch on our right is out of place. I also feel that the first branch to the left is a bit longish.

I'm not sure what else can be done about the branch placement.
Actually the picture doesn't do it justice, it was taken at night.
I should take better pictures with other views.
I'm aware of your "purist" views Stavros, this a compliment not a criticism.
But as you know it's not easy to obtain suitable material for bonsai on this island.
