Bursera ariensis progression

Purchased these seedling in 2001, this transformation is regarding plant (a)

Shortly after bring these plants home I saw this baobab online and thought the growth habit (a) was simlar

This is it in 2003 after being in the raised bed for 2yrs

In 2007 I dug it up and placed low in a 10" shallow pot

2008 I staged in this shallow tray to train the roots

2009 staged in one of my creations. For some reason the right side of the canopy did not leaf out yet, so it will not be going to the Inter-City show this year. I'm planning on removing the lower branch on the left, will make another fine tree in time.

The pot is 12" wide x 1.5" deep oval shaped
