Trident Maple Bonsai in a Well Chosen Pot

07/31/18

Sweet! I thought you might like to see this. It's Carl Morrow's Trident maple in a very well chosen and appropriately sized pot (Carl sent photos in an email, so no links)

Last week we featured a Robert Steven critique of a Trident maple that belongs to Carl Morrow (Size Matters & Small Is Beautiful). It was a repost of a one we originally did in September, 2010. Carl took Robert’s advice and repotted the tree into a smaller pot, though not the same pot Robert used in his simulation (it’s hard to find simulated pots!). As it turns out, I think this one is a better choice. BTW, Robert did make other important suggestions that also influenced Carl’s treatment of the tree

Carl's before shot and Robert's simulation (from 2010 and reposted last week). It makes sense that Robert would create a smaller version of the same pot. The important point is choosing a pot that emphasizes the tree rather than distracting from it, and size is one of the keys
