Spring Project Ibigawa Stone
« on: November 10, 2013, 08:31 PM »
Evening All,

After spending a great weekend working on my trees with my teacher I discussed a spring project I'd been contemplating. I have been looking at a Ibigawa Stone for the last year and took the plunge this weekend and bought it. We are going to plant it with a Japanese White Pine I've been working on for a couple of years and will be now on the hunt for the perfect suiban to place the planting on. I'll keep the forum updated on the progress when we plant it in the spring but these pictures should give you an idea of where we are headed with it.

Hey JRob,

   First, the last pic of the rock looks like a newborn elephant. Trunk up, its right leg up, left leg down, hind quarters still rolled under, white tail.

The rock and tree are  very harmonious, nice selection.

I been eyeing this tray by fellow Midwesterner Chuck Iker. http://www.ikerbonsaipots.com/slabs-trays/

Thought if size is right, it may work...

Afternoon All,

Project began last weekend with Hagedorn's help. Stone foundation set. Pot holes had to be drilled. Planting maybe next weekend. Fast Set will be totally cured by then. I'll keep everyone updated on the progress. JRob
