Walter Pall's main blog about bonsai and his work with trees from day to day. Lots of good pictures of good trees and lots of valuable information about bonsai.
It looks great!Since this is the first metal bonsai pot that I've seen, I have some questions.Is it cast or welded? Forged maybe? How is the "finish" done? BTW: is it really steel or is it iron? Will it oxidize/rust or not?
Good questions. They tell me it is steel. More than one method is used to create this I believe. I think it will rust and it is OK. It is not VERY heavy, btw. I can carry it around, no problem.WP
I saw it on your summermeeting. Personaly I dont like Moonpots ... but the way it is made and the look is fantastik. I think the guys who made it are specialists. Respekt for that work !saludosavicenna
I just remembered: given that it is, in fact, metal, what effect do you think it will have on the tree, especially the roots, in summer heat?
I believe it must be placed in shade in summer.WP
I would like to experiment with metal pots for my trees. Is there any other consideration to keep in mind for the health of the tree, other than committing a bonsai faux pas??
Sure, trees are highly endangerd in such a pot. It will heat up in full sun and cook the roots. It is almost not usable for normal purposes. This one ended up being a decoration piece in a bonsai museum.
