14 Summer 1994; the long branches are to feed some lower branches so that they fatten up considerably. This works very well.
16 Fall 1997
17 Spring 1999
20 Spring 2001
21 Winter 2002/3; in that year the braches could grow freely. This enhances root growth tremendously. In also fattened the trunk considerably.
22 Spring 2002; this is the back side. Terrible!
23 Spring 2002; What a lousy nebari! How could I live with this for 15 years?
24 Spring 2002; this is just about wide enough. It should work. The tree went into a big plastic pot as is with the good pot. Then lots of very well draining substrate was filled up to where the first branch starts. This was left for 12 months.
26 Spring 2005; looks kind of awkward still(
27 Summer 2006; the air layer worked well.

31 Spring 2006
32 Spring 2006
33 Summer 2006
34 Winter 2006/7; this is what became of the air-layered nebari so far. There is lots of room for improvement. But the seed is layed. Now it is a question of time only. More or less.
