This looks so interesting and nice. Great job. How are these attached to the deadwood, what is the technique to make this setup?

Indo, your work inspires me so much. I am so happy we have you here, indeed. This project is so cool and radical, I will try it one day on my own. What is the goal of cutting leaves by half by the way? I know its a common treatment but never really knew why its done.

Thank you all, first off all the base wood is extremely hard, but eventually in 10 years time it will be affected through root. So when you start a project use a rock base. For me it does not matter because I just get a rock one day, or plant the individual. I cut the leaves for two reason, first I can wire easy, second the plant start butting out new, if you do that often the leaves will get smaller, however if you let it grow for structure it will go back to original size. Structure was what I am after this time. Now after the trees are rewired I will concentrate for small branching, this is done by braking the tips out after every second or third leave has established , this leads to more branches and forks. In-between I will continue cutting all leaves, the next time when the wire comes off. this wasn't done the last time, as said i wanted structure, the branches doubled in size and thickness. Air roots are starting forming too.
