This is one of the oldest trees in my collection. Just figured that putting it at a dollar without any reserve will definately bring attention to my other trees. It is a flat oval pot.
The fifth and the thinnest pot used on this tree. The tree is well established. Just keep it moist and sunny. This years copper wires were put on just about one week ago as the growth is beginning to slow towards the end of the summer. You will be getting this tree with the wires.
Therefore it will be your responsibility to remove it. Please make sure that you will be using the fabric under the wires in the future as crapes are very delicate and develop scars. The tree was trained in a broom style. It has an excellent exposed root structure and the trunk had developed a multi-color smooth look that is very spectacular. It measures approximately 17 inches high.
In the summer it will reward you with delicate pink fragrant flowers. I got the leafs to shirk to about 1/5th of the original size.
The shape is basicly set. Next pruning of the shoots should take place approximately in two weeks. It will do well indoors in the northern climate.
One of the hardiest tropical specimens around. The soil used consists of my patented mix of baked clay particles, coarse sand, crushed pine bark and a touch of spagnum moss. The next repotting should be done in 4 years.
I had been cultivating bonsai’s for a past 25 years, therefore you will get an established healthy and great looking tree.
