I remember this one from an old thread. It's looking great. A lot of work has gone into it. I hope you get what your asking.

Hey guys glad you like it,

Yes I have been working with this tree for quite some time so it is nice that is looking so tidy after a bit of a period of neglect. Would love to keep this one but I am intending on staying in Tasmania so I have to reluctantly sell this one, and unfortunately pretty much everything else also.

I think there is an old thread around you are right Squizzy. I hope to post some more in the future once i'm settled down in Tassie and working with the abundance of cool native species. I have been to slack with posting in the last few years and hope to rectify that.

This is an awesome tree. It'll be flushing out light green shoots about now. How is it going?

How old is it and how many years have you been working on it?

Hi adge0001

I have not seen the tree for a while but I imagine you are correct about the flush of spring growth. I did not manage to sell the tree at the market day. I think my asking price was to high.

It was submitted to the national collection for loan for 3 years so I imagine it is looking better then ever under their expert care. I live in Tasmania now and have no intention of trying to bring this tree through quarantine as that would be a selfish risk to the plants health. My taste in bonsai has also changed somewhat with time and I now have a preference to work with our native material here in Tasmania. So after the three year period I will either try to sell the tree again or donate it to the collection if they will take it.

I purchased the tree as nursery stock many years ago it was grown by Hoy Leong Kwong as all these great squamata in our country are. There is an old thread kicking around somewhere on the forum that features its progression. I would assume the tree is anywhere between 25-30+ years old.
