And these were my demo materials...
It was difficult to find "real" ideal demo material because mostly semi finished or something "predictable", so I decided to use these almost finished trees which "didn't look so good" to talk about new idea of design...









...and here is the final new design with different nuance...

Thanks, that's very interesting. Those white sand seaside areas look just like where I grew up in north Florida.

I'm glad to see someone standing next to them, I was having a hard time judging their true size. For me, the weeping form is best, and really shows the natural beauty of this plant. The others are almost too poodle-ish, too clipped.

[quote="Robert Steven"]Jun, you missed one of the best parts of the event...

Here was Nacho on the demo, a Premna...







...........Yes, yes, I know. I regret my early plane booking. I should have stayed longer.

BTW. I thought you are giving Nacho a stick with 3 branches for the demo? hehehe. That is a very good material suited for his style of work. well done.

another BTW....for the first time I found a Premna materials yesterday, Just like the one you have in Indonesia cheers ...By chance a hunter found it from the southern part of the Philippines. So we can probably make good Premna bonsai now. cheers

I interested why doesnt it grow from seed. How does spread in Nature?

I have two baeckea in my backyard and every year there are seedlings near to the trees. The baeckea I have is baeckea virgarta which has now been reclassified as banbingtonia. They look very much like those posted here.

Here are some photos to show the seeds and seedlings.
Cheers,

Seeds


Young seedlings. The one on the extreme left is much older.


This group of casuarina was near to the baeckea trees and over the years the baeckea seedlings grow freely. So I incorporate them into my design.

Being a Malaysian I know baeckea in nature, propagate through seed, most likely the people here do not know how to break the dormancy of the seed. I see most nursery (usually located far from the tree natural ecosystem that is near the sea) use air layering to produce more trees. Most of the mature tree u sees in the show I think is collected from the wild.

Jun and Robert and y Malaysian friends,

thanks for posting the photos. I had an amazing time in Malaysia but have been too busy to post much.
Maybe in July things will settle down. Anyway, the Malaysian trees were truly magnificient - great inspiration. I'd love to figure out how to get some of those big Wrigthia religiousa into Florida. Thanks to all the Malaysian hosts for their hospitality.

Rob,

I hope you had a grat time in Malaysia and the USA national show. My wife and I were happy to see you in LAX, however brief!!

Well about the Shuei Mei (wrigthia) you should be able to grow those yourself. They are really fast growers. Just get a 40 gallon container and that's it.

Warm regards,

Jose Luis
