mugo number 2 more upright

This mugo was in the pot since 1997. Gradually and almost unnoticably it tilted to the right by sher weight. Today I repotted it after 13 years and placed it more upright. A large stone in the substrate on the right will make sure it does not fall back again. It seemed that repotting was OK, but not yet really absolutely necessary after 13 years.

Hi,

Sure, this is normal for such trees. Some are not repotted for thirty years. This applies to old collected conifers.
Where is the problem? Another bonsai myth cracked.
