The mugo with lots of bizarre deadwood -part 4

The new pot is Chinese and not very expensive. But it is an almsot perfect fit according to my taste.
Alex holds the tree for me to find the final positon. Then we filled the pot with loose subtrate. Alex worked it in with an iron stick. This is better than a wooden chopstick, much to the surprise of most. The intermediate pictures show that the position in the pot is fine, but there is lots of algae on the deadwood. Alex painted the wole tree to get rid of the algae look and we added fine substrate as top soil.
Then the final picture. It apears that the strong dead bracnh to the right is way too thick. Juergen would agree to this, I am sure. The bizarre deadwood could use some smoothening also.
