Alright, then it will need a more formal pot!

Brian,

I love this tree and the bark is great.

Are you placing in morning sun and afternoon shade? Or light shade all day?

Thanks and best regards to all.

Ray

Thanks Ray.  Last year it was in full sun all day and I think it was a little much.  This year, it got full sun until the shoots hardened off, then moved to under an oak tree, where it gets morning sun and dappled light after about 11:00 AM.

Tons of new growth on the spruce. That will be a lot of fun to work with in Fall.

this is one species I'd really like to try out...but alas there are NO material in south africa...only way is to grow from seed. which I don't think will result in a finished bonsai in my lifetime :) sad but true....

awesome tree Brian!

kind regards
Herman

Nice work. It must be satisfying to live with.
What are your thoughts about another pot?

Thanks, yes, and yes...the pot works well as a transition pot from the nursery can, but next spring or the following, it will move to a slab or shallow tray.

Don't feel you have to rush it to another pot.

The tree is too nice to rush.
