Little Champion potted and prunned. Unfortunately, fantastic nebari is now under the soil surface...but, it is safer this way. Now, I like the tree even more. Excuisite little grotesque, like trees from the Snowhite's magical and scary forest. This tree has NO scars on the trunk, no big branches to cut directly on the trunk, and still fat and powerful with old bark. There was no big root to cut under the root ball, just finger sized roots and plenty of tiny roots...great and ramified root system. The soil on my new location is even better than on that previous one. I think that, with time, I like more and more grotesque shapes, something like fantasy tree creatures. That concept attracts me more and more. There is more crazy stuff at my new collecting location, so I cannot wait to get there again.
Old and cracked bark. I like that.
