Yamadori found at a Nursery!

Ahh yes I do see that now, I was blinded by the movement in the trunk haha! How much of the rootball do you plan on eliminating when repotting?

Wow, great find! I love treasures like this.

Oh man I was elated when I found this tree and was too excited to work on it. This was my first time doing a major styling of a tree and not just structural wiring!

Now it’s time for the hobby within the hobby. Pots. You have a year to find the perfect match lol.

I’m worried of the price of the size of pot i would need lol

But the price of the pot doesn’t matter really. Not compared with the enjoyment and fulfilment of having the complete image. :grin:

This picture from the Artisan’s Cup website reminded me of your tree. An unglazed pot that size shouldn’t cost “too much”. It’ll likely be more than you spent on the tree, but that’s the beauty of buried treasure. :slight_smile:

Well that’s an amazing tree and encouraging!! I appreciate you sharing this tree! What size do you think this pot is?

I was thinking maximum 50%-60%. I have to see how the root structure is below the soil line and above the bottom of the pot. Going to be a massive job.

I see. If you remember once the after care, I would love to know how the tree reacts!

Hey pj! Did you ever get to repotting your Cedrus? How did it go?

Yes. It went really well, I’m planning on styling it this year. I made a thread for it last year.

Thank you very much for the update!! How much of the roots did you prune? It was still coming out of the 50 gal nursery pot correct?

About 60-70%, I left a good portion untouched. Ryan had helped me through the Forum Q&A look for the right time to repot. The bud should be swollen and even extending a little bit. It was one of the last repot I did of the season that year.

Thank you very much for the update! I will keep the bud swollen/extension in mind when I try to repot this big guy!
