This tree was one of the first yamadori I dug up while living here. I originally grabbed it for the bark and accessibility even though it is very ugly, it hardly got a glance. As a result, this tree grew great and the pot is absolutely root-bound. When you ignore material, let it grow freely, do not alter the direction it’s facing the sun constantly and fertilize it the same as the trees that get more attention, one ends up growing with vigor.
Have a good one.
