Great bulked up trunk and foliage there Anthony! Do you think it's a little too symmetrical though?

It's an amazing result from 3 and a bit years ago, and yeah, they are fun. :) Agree with no hard and fast rules, so I'll shut up now, LOL!

Love me a Cattleya or two, do you grow any as accents? I've some unknown orchids I inherited that I've let grow into bonsai pots, but they've never flowered so have no idea what they are!

Thanks Mel, never shut up always ask always challenge, it is always great to get feed back.(you are quite refreshing to the site, great to see and hear) as for accents mind are all too big and., but quite ignorant about them at the same time. but they do intrigue me and when I retire in a few years will address that as many bonsai and work and life, like most people taking the bulk of our time which I love.....cheers

Thanks Anthony, appreciate it. I have so much to learn!

I'm getting too old to take much new info in, cos old info has to move out first...but it's a good challenge for me to keep trying. :)

That's pretty Anthony!

The ones I have are mostly yellow/greens...one always flowered for my daughter's birthday in early March, but in the last 5 years it's slowly changed to flowering earlier and earlier. I guess that's telling me something!

Merry Christmas to you all!

We've finally gotten our summer here, after a very mild November and early December.... had to happen I guess.

Will share when I get a flower or two.

Cheers
