Is This Really One Tree in Two Pots?

onetree2potsIs this really one tree in two pots? Or is it a just a bit of tricky photography? This might be settled by more photographs taken from different angles, but this one is all we have and there's no written explanation. Anyway, I'm inclined to believe that it is what it appears to be... but then we've been fooled before. It was posted by Trang Jira. His only caption is the word Diospyios*

We don’t usually feature novelty bonsai (with the possible exception of halloween specials- see below). Still, and though one tree in two pots is a novelty, it is a decent tree and it is a concept capable of stopping your mind for a moment.

I don't really believe that this tree or the one below - from Robert Steven’s 2014 International Bonsai Art & Culture Biennale - are novelty bonsai and I'm not really equating them with the tree above, but they do share the distinction of being unusual. Both of these photos appeared in a post we did last October 31st
