I was lucky enough to purchase this pretty cool oak prebonsai at a Dallas nursery and just had to take it home with me because I think it has potential to become something awesome in the future. From what I’ve read collecting oak is something that’s not necesarilly easy to do and it was awesome seeing it done successfully. The owner repotted it early this year and he says he’s not sure how lon he has had it but I saw it for the first time about three years ago and the pot it was in looked pretty old at that point. I don’t think much root work has been done on it and I wish I could have seen the roots when he repotted it but even if they aren’t the best I think they can be improved in the future. I’m thinking of changing the angle during the next repot and styling it in an informal upright design. I think I should keep the primary branch but sort of using it as a secondary trunk due to its length and straightness. Let me know if you disagree with the styling proposal. Of course it needs time for refinement but I really like the bark and the fact that it looks healthy.
