Love the trident Steven!
This is a departure from your usual shorter/stockier tendancies!
Very cool :tu:
One of the fabulous things about growing bonsai is as you get old and decrepit your trees get old and beautiful

G'day Ryceman,

Haven't done anything to the Serissa yet but the Celtis was separated last week. I'll leave it to settle it's new roots for a while before wiring the branches. The first RH branch is just about thick enough now so I'll be shortening it soon back to the first twig.

Steven

Thanks for the update Steven.
Looks like it hasn't missed a beat and that right branch has thickened up nicely - no holding back with growth despite the ground layer!
It's a nice little tree with good movement/dynamics about it I think.

Here's a couple that I've worked on this week.

First is a Willow Leaf fig that I put on this rock in 2015. I should uncover it and see how it has bonded.

and here is how it looked in 2015;

Next is a bit bigger than shohin, it's one of my Tristania laurina that I started from tube stock in 2008.

And how it began 10 years ago.

Potted the Nerifolia into an Iker pot last night and now I'll work on growing the branches.

Thanks Steven....your little trees are always worth a long look. It's also great to see that Boris Lomov has joined the ranks.

Will we also see a Tom Benda pot sometime in the future? Hope so 8-)

Cheers, Pat
