The pot I used ended up looking like the North American Indian canoe which was not intention. Nevertheless, the shape of the lower part of the trunk is such that I am actually satisfied.
The trunk should go slightly angled more to left (when watching the first photo). The moss I installed to keep more of the “soil” inside not to have then washed away. There is more surface without the moss than somehow visible in the photo.
The style I aim remains sort of “wind swept” at least for now. I like how it is bent to one side. Only if I get the horizontal part of trunk under the soil would be great. Nebari?! I doubt I will ever get it here 😀
By the way, the idea to put the pot on the old stump was not good, the colors somehow blended and the port disappeared. But hey, this is all about learning 🙂
