show worthy Casuarina

Post by melbrackstone »

Does anyone have a Casuarina that's close to show worthy yet? Can we see what you've got and is it possible to get some hints on how to get there?

I've mostly seen Casuarina equisetifolia from Indonesia that look the goods...

This one won best Australian native at the Bonsai Open 2019.
Not a great photo, but you can still see the quality.

Thanks Watto, I think that's Hugh Grant's tree.

Another beaut!

So pleased to see we're getting there with this species!

Here are some excellent examples. I think they might be all Stevens work. These are from the Ausbonsai wiki. I would love to see examples of other fantastic Casuarina trees if anyone has some.
