I acquired this tree a year ago and left it this past season to gain vigour. When I was happy it was growing well I decided to check it's roots and it had encircled the pot so time for a trim & an opportunity to improve the nebari. Here's some pics ... I'd love people to say what they'd do given this nebari & why
a) what would you prune first & why ? b) what % of the fibrous to keep c) methods used to make further enhancements such as splitting / spacing roots for best radial placement. d) anything else you deem relevant / interesting (tips)
The aim really is to try and get into the head of more experienced members - their thought processes, logic & time scales and see if I'm on a similar wavelength (I've written my plan down in word so I'll copy and paste it in later).
I have great respect for a lot of posters on this site so I am looking forward (hopefully) to hearing how they'd attack this nebari. Now some pics ...
Pic 1 ... combed out (the backside of the nebari). As you can see there are 2 thick roots here as well as a lot of fibrous healthy root.
