ok I have 2 rocks selected for my root over rock project I just need to know witch is best for my tree here's a pic of the tree and the rocks:
I would. You have no clue what the root system looks like right now. When you repot, you can determine where the roots are, and if it's feasible right now. Most start with a tree from a traing pot which allows un-inhibitied growth, that way there's long strong roots. I've even seen one person grow they're tree for a year in a traing pot with a small clay pot under the tree forcing the roots to grow out and down over the tiny pot(pretty sure I saw that here). Once you know you've got strong long roots, you can root over rock. Remember, once it's done, you'll have what looks to be a good 5'' of exposed roots with the rock on the right, so you'll need roots alot longer than that when you finally expose the rock. A tree in already in a bonsai pot like yours, doesn't have a root system like that.GardenerX wrote:accualy no I'm not familure with it, I just got this tree for Christmas so should I wait after I repot it then after about a year try it......
