Formal display/ rock planting ?

Post  Norma on Thu Jul 30, 2009 5:23 pm

My bonsai club is preparing for our annual show which is judged and a question has arisen about how to display a large rock/shimpaku planting in a water filled suiban.

Will a stand or slab be necessary under the suiban and what about accents ?

Your thoughts?

How large? Personally, I think all bonsai should be displayed on something. In this case a wood slab would seem the most (preferably a natural burl) appropriate.

A rush or a grass-like plant might be a nice accent for a watery display.

I agree with Jim in regard to a wood slap. Something with soft edges. I think the color of the rock and tree should really decide the grasses or what ever accent you choose.

I recently saw a large slab display using plastic robot action figures for a accent. Wish I had the pic. Smile
