Cutting taken in 2001.
First pic in 2002, then cut back (a very bad inspiration, tree shape took a bad and unrepairable  turn.
Rempoting in 2005.

The tree.
I urgently need to grow branches to get more conicity and someday get something that look like a tree Wink
Another 10 year journey at least to get something barely adequate.

That's what I was wondering and in a workshop Mr Kawabe told me that I should get back enough conicity without chopping it.
Not quite sure though.

Very nice.  Care to share what you're doing with the tie on the roots to the stub?  Just moving things around?

And if you were wanting to make this have more "conicity" why cut off that big low branch that would have been a great sacrifice branch to further thicken the base?

Yes.

It was big to the point that healing was not possible. I hope to get a lot of new buds to grow multiple thin sacrifice branches rather than few big ones.
