1) old pot
2) new pot, still not the final one, but closer

The trunk is somewhat slanted even in the new pot. Wouldn't it be better if you potted it upright, maybe by "sinking" the left side a bit deeper in the pot?

Mark,

I don't think so at all. The slightly slanting trunk is part of the design.

Walter, what do you use as your top covering, is a small dark brown pebbel?

I think the new pot suits the plan much better as it makes the trunk of the tree stand out in comparison.

The trop covering is baked loam, sold here under the brand Maxit or Fibotherm. The size is 2 millimeters. It is quite cheap and effective.
