i ordered this guy from Brussels bonsai. it was a four year old if im not mistaken. it was $50 well spent i think. i had been experimenting with native yamadori already and i wanted some more variety in my collection.
come on packing guy! Brussels wouldnt even answer my email about it.
i didnt know much at this time, but i did know i didnt like the nebari. Theodore(rip) didnt like it either. so i attempted a layer next.
it grew a little after i layered it.
well, i knew they could be layered now
i cut everything back to single trunk and started over.
cleaned it up a little and peaked at the roots
its been growing like crazy this year
the callus knocked the rest of the cut putty off by september. i think i finally have a plan for this tree.
