Progression thread : Allocasuarina torulosa 27

I Purchased this fantastic material from Leong at Bonsai South on 1st November 2014
Cost $30

This is an attempt at growing a more natural style of Casuarina. Leong had so many great bases of Casuarina back then. :(

Looking good Rory ,love the movement on this one. Well done on all the others you posted as well. By the way how many Casuarinas do you have ? I think I have the same problem with Kunzeas :lol: Cheers John.

I appreciate the comments guys. :beer: This species is a pain in the bum at repotting time. The bark is so fragile. :x

Thanks John. Many years back I had a Casuarina adoption agency and the population was in excess of about 300. :palm:
So I gave away most of them to central coast club members, friends and others to hopefully spread more interest in Casuarina as bonsai.
The rest I sold at the Ausbonsai market day.

Now I've only kept handfuls of each species worth spending my time on. :beer:
I used to grow Kunzea (fantastic material for bonsai), but gave them away as I needed to downsize. Of course, this was working until I stumbled across Melalueca thymifolia, Micromyrtus and Thryptomene. :palm: :palm:

photo fail. :palm: Sorry about the poor visibility on this one. Much easier to see the branching in real life.
