I didn’t touch this Choujubai since I’m growing it as a ‘material’. Looks not good, but it is growing steadily.
This photo is as of Feb. 24th. New buds were appearing.
And this is the situation on Mar. 11th. A lot of new buds are growing.
This is the “Hikobae”, which I wired the other day. New buds also appeared and growing!
The tip seems withered…As you see, the tip is broken so badly..
New buds are also growing around the root. Or It may be Hikobae? It should be cut off in theory, but I’ll leave them since this Choujubai is a “material”. I may be able to use this part later..
This! A flower bud!I looked for more flower buds, but found only this one. Anyway, it will be a good accent.
And one more thing…
In this seedling bed, I did “Sashiki” of Choujubai last rainy season (around end of May~June). By the way the long branch sticked is Kyoto branch, which I broke the other day when I did wiring.
I found small, small buds growing!
And here as well!
I found 7~8 new buds. They are quite small, as big as few millimeters. I wish new trunk will grow from here!
In this time of the year, many of trees wake up and start growing. I’m so exited!
