Thuga Occidentalis Re-Pot

I have been planning to change the front and the planting angle of this Thuga Occidentalis for some time. As it was badly in need of a re-pot, today was the day to get the work done.

You can see in the next picture that the roots had filled the oval pot

This is a picture taken last year which shows the new preferred front and planting angle

And this is how it looks at the moment. I had hoped to plant it in a nice round Japanese ceramic pot I have but it was just a little too small. So for now it is housed in a round mica training pot until I can find something suitable.

I still have some way to go with the foliage development of this tree but the new front is a definite improvement I think.  The next job will be to fully rewire it in the late summer
