Just noticed it's back in the pot from previous years.  I need a new pot choice.  Any suggestions?

About 3 weeks after decandling.  Desperately needs to be rewired.

This is certainly a wonderful progression to read thru.  Thank you for updating this and your other JBP threads.  I particularly like this one, as I prefer the less in your face JBPs.  Really great work, can't wait to see it wired out.

Have you found a new pot for it yet?

Dont' know if the size is anything close to what you need, but I love this pot, and with the more refined silhouette that you are reaching for with this tree, I think you could get away with something along these lines...

Ă‘ice choice...I had my eye on that one for a recently-chopped little corker.

Ooh, I really like that pot.  What else?  What do others think?  What's your choice and why?

I think that Zenigo is right on; size permitting.

What size of pot do you need for this one? I've been pot hunting lately...

The current pot is about 10.5" by 8.5" od, and looks a litle small. That size might be about right if it were all wired up and in a different style. A little bigger could work as well.

Well the Zenigo is 12.9x9.8x3.1 so it would be a pretty good fit size wise.  I'd jump on it if it were my tree... I really like this JBP.

I love the tree, quick question about pot selection though (keep in mind I'm pretty new), but I recall reading that pines are considered to be more masculine and you would usually select a stronger square/rectangle/straight sided pot for the masculine trees. Am I oversimplifying what I read, or is pot selection more about personal choice and based on a tree by tree basis.

I think the lines of this tree are more feminine and gentle than the strong thick JBPs you see a lot more often in the masculine pots. So if a masculine species has a feminine design....? Like I said, I may be trying to follow the rules too closely - or maybe they're not really rules? Still trying to learn!

Thanks!

Jodie

Yes and no.  For the most part, you're right about the guidelines (rules are too rigid :) ).  This tree is a little less masculine than most JBP that we see.  Some might even say the shape is a bit contrived.  I think the pot in question may be a little too feminine/ornate/something for my liking for this tree, but that's just personal preference.  I'm also afraid it might be just a little too big. 

I'm still holding out for some more suggestions!
