Premna work
« on: March 30, 2011, 10:17 AM »
When I got this material, it was planted upright in a "fog-legs" position. The character and bark texture was just amazing, but the owner seemed to have problem to visualize the design...but I saw the hidden potential....

It's great to see you posting here Robert. I am a fan of your work, and this tree, it seems, will be awesome too. One question, will the first leaves be reduced that much, or will  they reduce after much ramification is acheived?  Larry

Thanks Larry. The reduction depends on how good the ramification structure you work on...the better the structure is formed (more twigs ofcourse) the smaller the leaves will reduce...

What kind of timeline are you looking at for creating the branch structure in your growing environment?  How long do you think it will take you to create your vision?
