Am curious about the holes in the material used. What make you think the roots will not grow down?

Good point...I had kind of wondered that. I have not placed my roots on anything for this technique. So I wasn't sure if this was another option.

That mesh only to guide the nebari direction. once the nebari grow into the desire size, it will be cut back again around the trunk base roughly 10-15mm from the base. with that, i can have nebari(with this, i can have another 2smaller root seen at the end of that nebari "if lucky", to make the tree look stronger) only appear at the top part of the soil and regrow the feeder root (rootballs).

Really developing rapidly, very nice, you really know what you are doing.
Thanks Leo.
I constantly check and remove useless roots every 1 1/2 months approximately.
Maybe will hit a new schedule 3 monthly basis for upper growth once i achieve the desire nebari and rootballs.

cheers

Very well done and thanks for sharing! Curious, do you have similar nebari development processes and results with other species of trees?
Thanks Gdy2000
aside from wrightia, I've tried with premna microphylla as well, works the same. I guess whatever species that can handle hard root pruning, doable.(correct if i'm wrong).
cheers.

Awesome!!!!:cool::cool::cool::cool::cool::cool:




Great progression!!! Was it difficult to remove from the mesh it was attached to in a previous photo?:)

Fun little tree!!;)
Thanks.
Removing the mesh was easy, i trim all the btm feeder roots. Left only the nebari and cutting it short too.
