  1. Piotr, I like last one. It is nice tree but did you think about improving nebari, if possible? It is only one picture so hard to judge from it. I can imagine the tree with much flatter nebari.

    • Thanks Maros. Yup , my plan was get a bit bigger pot but a little shallower as well to get roots more spread , but it will be first time I will re-pot it so I don’t know the root system so well , it may take few steps rather then one go. We will see next spring.


  2. Ok, my input just to confuse you further lol. I reserve the judgement to see the tree with the pots, I think they might be a little small but hard to tell. In order of preference for me 3rd, 2nd, 1st then 4th. 3rd as I like the look of the pot and the dull blue appeals to me. Looks a little wider which is good but might not be deep enough. 2nd is nice, not just as nice a colour but the shape and depth might make this the best fit. I really like the first pot but I’m not sure it’d be big enough or that it suits the tree, perhaps a little too in your face. 4th, I like the colour but the shape isn’t just as nice and it also looks a little shallow. Photoshopping is hard to do for these. Trying to keep the scale exact and making it look right is a task. That said I did a quick one. I’ve emailed it to you.

    • Thanks Ian. As you know yourself choosing the right pot it is not such easy thing. My idea about this tree is , get some bigger pot but shallower then existing one, then try spread roots more flat to improve nebari and bring canopy closer to the pot, ( better proportions I think). I like yours virts you post me. I think the 3rd one of my post just a little bigger then existing one should be ok. I like the other shallow one from yours virts as well. PM to me details I will think about


  3. I would choose the third pot because the texture of the glaze highlight the bark of the tree and in my opinion the tree transmit calm and because of this I`ll pick the simplest pot. good luck with your choose! 🙂
