    Considering using this rock

    I am considering using this rock in a ROR composition. I would like to use one of my 3 year old JBP's. 1. The rock cracked and split along it's original plane of deposition as I was hammering on it. I think it looks pretty cool. Will this cause issues down the line? 2. Is the pictured 3 year...

    FreshAirSunshine's 2023-2026 ROR Contest Apple Submission

    Not yet a ROR, but I think that's where I'm going to take this collected apple. Recently bought at a club auction and still in field soil. The branches and curve make me want to something semi-cascade-like, but I need some convincing way to get the trunk majorly tilted. Am I stupid thinking...

    Rutger78 2023-2026 Root over Rock Contest

    Came across this contest and thought it might be fun to join with my (wild) rose. I was considering placing it over a rock anyways. Grown from seed over the past 3(?) years. Possibly Rosa rubiginosa or similar. Removed some branches previously but extended quite a lot so gave a heavy pruning...

    Mugo ROR, rock too small?

    I started this mugo pine root-over-rock in 2018. Sorted out roots in 2020 and washed it off again last weekend to check the roots. I could have waited another year to work it again. This time I am dissatisfied with the way it is going. Mainly, I think the rock is going to be too small for the...

    Zelkova ROR project

    I've been working on this Zelkova for a few years now and wanted to start a thread to track progress and get some feedback. 2018: Repotted this year and changed the angle: I think I'll be planning a major chop/cutback sometime this year or next year depending on how fast it grows. Poorly...

    When should I check them roots?

    I have several root-over-rock I have started in the last 5 or so years. Juniper, Chinese elm, trident, JBP, mugo, cotoneaster, rosemary. My question, how long should I wait to dig one up and check the roots? I do not want to wait until the roots are not fixable, but I am afraid too quickly or...

    Cypress sitting on a cliff ROR, help needed.

    I bought this cypress last spring with the intent of putting it on this peoce of jade but didn't have a box big enough for it. After forgetting about it for the winter, I just found my grow box so I need to repot it tonight or tomorrow. Opinions on where I should set it on the rock. I consider...

    RoR Acer P. on Nephrite

    When I moved into my townhouse almost two years ago, a maple had been growing from seed in an overgrown pot in the backyard with roots that went almost straight down. I was gutting the yard and nothing was going to be left back there so it either had to die or get repotted. I have a few pieces...
