Hello,

I have some options

1:
IMG-20190905-WA0012.jpgIMG-20190903-WA0041.jpgIMG-20190905-WA0013.jpg

I liked it the most in the beginning, It's double trunk with taper. The main trunk seems to me to have branches a bit too high and lack of interesting movement...

Then I have also these other options:

3:

4:

7:

I know pics are not very good. I can ask for more pics on specif ones which could be of interest. If you are able to see obvious flaws which would make the tree not very interesting please let me know your opinion so I can filter down the selection.

Thank you!!

I see a lot of potential in number 3.
When were they collected and how much recovery time have they had?
Judging from the weeds in the pot at least this year.
Come on ol' chap details, details, details.

Last one looks good too but not sure how leggy thos branches are. Hard to see from pic.

Good good. I see that a lot of western folks repot their trees way too often. You should be able to to some wiring and styling and repot in a few years.
Not too familiar with this species but so far material looks great as a start. Personally I would choose number 3 doing a split trunk one of entire shari and the other living.

Thank you, can you point me where would you split the trunk in tree number 3? Just to better understand your approach with this one.

thanks,

Green is the part to keep and the red would be dead wood. Bear in mind that this is a rough idea

Thanks a lot! Now can´t be clearer, but the jin I don´t think it´s possible in that way... Those are 3 horizontal branches you are using... not really a second trunk... (as I interpret the pic)IMG-20190903-WA0000.jpg

I see you can always wire them and tuen them into shari later
