Hi, I have this Larch since 2008, I repoted this Spring in a rectangular pot but I haven’t photos.
I think it could improve making some adjust but I don’t know…maybe remove the first two branches or reduce large branches…what do you think!?
AWSOME! Looks ok I’m THIS pot. A lillte deep maybe.
Western larch, or Japanese?
Lol @KurtP read the thread title
Yup, missed that. Got lost looking at the trees and missed the forest.
Was fishing for L. eurolepsis or deciduia, and not occidentalis, or kamferia. They grow a little differently.
Not sure which would be available on the Iberian peninsula… I have 20 Japanese and only one Western latch here in Washington state.
Still, an awsome larch bonsai. @ VICKY.
Yes, an European but could be an hybrid between Japanese because it has a darker green, smaller and thick leaves and some shoots start purple and later become green.
I don’t know, I bought it as raw in a Garden Center 10 years ago.
Never get flowers or cones, a pity
I think this tree is nice already. It is what it is. The only slight adjustment you may want to try is lowering the branches a little further. It is a nice tree. Traditional style - which is ok. We’re not going to start killing trees only because they’re styled more traditionally. Not their fault… you may try a more non-traditional pot or a slab in the future to you want to deviate from traditional…
Thank you @rafi, I thought compact the tree but I don’t know…as you said it is a traditional design for a conifer.
As well I could give some shape to the pads, maybe more angular nor so round.
