Chinzan Clump
« on: February 25, 2010, 05:09 PM »
This is a clump, helmet, multi-trunk or whatever style chinzan. It needs to be repotted and wired this year. I have a nice erin pot for it. It has nice pink flowers, and the pics of the flowers are from last year.

Chinzan clump was wired tonight. I shortened long branches and put movement into them.

No, because I am repotting it. Repotting and flowering should not be done in the same year. What I will do on every tree I repot is let one bud flower for a day, then remove it.

Update,

The Pic is of the tree today. After talking to Dave Kreutz about it, it will be trained as a helmet. The concept is a japanese samurai helmet with dense foliage in a triangular shape, with the multiple trunks being the only structure that is really shown. It needs a few years of growing and shape needs to become more triangular, it is real flat right now. I will also slip it back into a training pot next spring to give it room to grow and develop faster.
