One of the shohin group members found this on Morton Albek's web site. It is an excellent approach to creating better roots and nebari on shohin. This is the same technique with a tile we that we did 2 years ago, just on a smaller scale. If you use a convex object, aka a rounded object, the roots will follow the top of the rounded object and a gentler downward curve will created. The big decision is how big should the object be to accommodate the size of the tree
REMEMBER, the Shohin Seminar in Santa Nella opens its registration on October 30th.
