The ancient olive tree part 3

In March of 2007 it was potted into this round container. The nebari looked like reverse before and now it appears much more powerful. When repotting it was found that the olive had been planted into pure pumice without any addition. This is fine for an olive. But one has to know that with such a substrate it must be watered often and a lot and fed often and a lot also with nitrogene. If this is not done the olive will not grow. Well, and then it must be in full sun and it should be warm to hot at the location. Let's hope that it will grow well from now on.
Now this does not look like a 'bonsai' at all, but it does not look much like a tree either. Well, the future is shown on the virtual. If it grows!
