Assim decidimos optar pela poda drástica, esperando desenvolver um shoin com mais movimento e melhores proporções.
On the more recent lesson at Jardim de Bonsai, we had study this Serissa. in the past i had saw that the tree was not proportional. too high comparing to the litle ase. Then i'd tryed to cut the apex and give ano ther orientation. But the tree had still very high and with a long and straight trunk. the upper part of the trunk were composed by five or six branches, closed to each others. i thought that could do the apex with one of them, but the tree would keep two big problems: too high e the upper trunk without movement.
so we decided the more drastic solution. and i'm sure that was the best. it had to be done to get a good shoin in the future. winter is coming, so i brought the tropical tree inside.
