Here are a couple of my tree's that I've worked on this week.

First is taller than shohin but it is in a shohin pot (does that count?). A Trident that I've had since 2012. Just defoliated it to get rid of the burnt leaves and added a little bit of wire to a couple of branches.

Next is a Port Jackson Fig I purchased in 2013 from the estate of the late Jim David who was a member of the School of Bonsai.

Following is how it looked when I purchased it.

Hi ya Steven just killing time, might have watch that is all.
To answer your question, Bonsai today had a series of the 50 best Shohin in Japan. I think numbers 43/44 or round those numbers. There is JBP at 30 inches in a Shohin pot, the comment was because it was IN A SHOHIN pot it qualified.
So yours is Shohin.
Cheers Pup.

I am not a complete fool, some parts are missing
