my Shimpaku...
« on: September 19, 2011, 10:02 PM »
i thought i had a before pic but i dont...i know the green wire isnt the greatest but thats all i had and i only had some REAL wire to do some branches then i ran out...so later on down the road I'm gonna wire it again...just gonna let it grow for a while now.....when i bought this Juniper it had just a little curve in the trunk, so i put some more curve into it...i think it looks good.....what do you guys think..?

i think it needs a lot more movement. with the diameter you have there, you can virtually tie that thing in a knot

okay, i was thinking about what you said about more movement, and i thought i would do it now...ugh so i did and i ended up break a branch at the apex UGH, so i used some super glue to hold them together...i read in a book and seen it on youTube that u can use super glue on a branch that has been broken...so lets hope it stays alive... but heres the pic
