Earpod Tree-Enterolobium cyclocarpum- Anyone ever use them for bonsai?

Post  timahlen on Fri Jun 15, 2012 6:56 pm

Hi All,

On a recent trip to Hawaii, I came across a beautiful, huge tree called the ear pod tree or elephant ear tree (Enterolobium cyclocarpum). Anyone ever try to train one for bonsai?

If this is the tree I am thinking of it has large, compound leaves and grows like a weed. I think it would be a difficult subject.

It's a legume, in the same family as the Texas ebony and Brazilian rain tree. A description can be found on Wikipedia at the following link:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enterolobium_cyclocarpum.

The article does say it is a fast grower.
