Dug up a landscape Chinese juniper on April 4 2021. Have been working dead wood and splitting live vein from dead to give the branches motion. Pretty good back budding so elected to take it out of the galvanized wash basin and put it into a mica pot. Photos of collected tree and process to repot.
Selected initial front and angle in the wash basin.
Good color and new growth starting, so removed from basin and prepared my largest mica pot.
Lots of foliage left to grow roots. Will need to adjust angle once healthy and after initial styling.
Good problem that there are lots of roots! Built a sphagnum and akadama wet wall to lasagna roots on the back side. Hope for the best. Protect from wind and freezing temperatures.
Two years in the collection container. Lots of fertilizer and plenty of sunshine. Wintered outside in my cold storage structure.
