It's a yamadori, collected on Mt. Fuji. The first picture is after Marco worked on it in April. the second picture is from a week ago after I candle pruned it and the third is how much I took off. The towel is to keep the pot cool. On really hot days over 95 degrees, I keep the towel wet.
Looks very natural. I love the shape and balance of this tree. Look forward to seeing it develop over the years! This is one JRP that I would be willing to own; I haven't seen too many that look very promising.
