Repot of an old Bougie.
Old Bougie we got at Andy's place.
It needed a change to show it off more.
It has some very fine carving in the center and is a very mascline tree.
We changed the front and tilted it at the rear.

Pretty pretty Irene. I just got my first Bougie myself.

In my opinion, the new pot is still too big and the color does not accent any part of the tree as far as I can tell from the picture shown. The old pot was much closer to a color that would compliment the flowers in bloom, which is the prime time to display this species. Well, maybe a tad bit more green and a little less blue. At any rate a complementary color should be used to highlight a good feature of the tree, in this case, the flowers.

The tree itself is obviously still under development so any critique would be premature. It does have one heck of a big trunk though.

The new pot is fine as to size, since the tree is in development and we want to accelerate growth. As a training pot, it's not even worth mentioning.

I like the interesting trunk and this tree has the potential to be a show-stopper! You should be able to show this one in 2 to 3 years. Great work!
