--- Quote from: Leo in NE Illinois on August 27, 2014, 12:35 PM ---I had not thought of putting it on bark. I have some cork laying around. I will have to see if I can find, or trim to make an attractive piece of cork. My only concern is bark is too close in coloration to the leaves - it would diminish the most beautiful trait of the plant? Or would it? Does one want to help make the color pop or mute it down?

The "leaf litter".  That is one of my favorite mini habitats. So much to be found.
This is why I would pay homage to where it grows.

I like the "camouflaged" look it could bring. To make it harder to find the leaves.
I imagine one will first glance at the flowers, as with any kusamono, My eye goes right to the "protruders". A thought of "what is this growing out of?" Brings the eye down.
Then realizing the hidden leaves, brings a bit of excitement because they were there the whole time. They are still beautiful, and the excitement will make them more interesting to look at then. Like a gaboon viper in the leaf litter! Once you actually see it, you have to look at it more because it was Right There!

A little bright green moss could pop them out again too!

I love the stone, Brian, but to my eyes the pot? it's sitting on detracts from the purity of the stone. I'd prefer it sitting  on the jiita. What do you think?

--- End quote ---
You have a good point, thanks.  The pot is actually a (cheaply) carved wooden stand that came with the stone.  If I can get the stone to sit properly on the burl, it may be a better composition without the stand.
