Here was my idea when I designed the bonsai




Samanea saman or our local rain tree was an amazing tree with large canopy that I loved so much since my childhood. Luckily I can find an other rain tree: Pithecellobium tortum that has smaller leaves and ideal for a bonsai that I dreamt.

Actually Budi,

a friend of mine from the UK, was able to bonsai a Saman, but to maintain it he had to use a large amount of fertilizer.
I am trying to re-do a similar effort.
I was able to keep one at around 15 cm years ago, with really small leaves, I will one day try again.
Later.

Happy New Year to all!
Budi, thank you for showing the "inspiration tree" for your lovely bonsai. There are many trees I want to photograph for inspiration and design ideas.

Hi Alexandra and Todd,

There is no carving on this tree. The color of the bark made the white silhouette on the trunk. Here is the close up.

Samanea Saman also called Albizia Saman are known locally in Jamaica as 'Guango' Its a beautiful tree and I can see how it would have inspired you to create a bonsai in its likeness. I actually have a few that I have grown from seed that are in training but they are light years from being in any condition to be shown.

Maybe 10 years from now I'll have something worthy of sharing, but I'd love to get my hands on a raintree.

Cheers,

Thanks Nigel. To my mind the leave of Samanea saman is too big for a medium to a small bonsai. We had better choose a specimen with smaller leaves. I would love to see yours, anyhow.

[quote Thanks Nigel. To my mind the leave of Samanea saman is too big for a medium to a small bonsai. We had better choose a specimen with smaller leaves. I would love to see yours, anyhow.]

I agree the leaves would be too large for a medium to small bonsai which is why I thought it would be better represented as a medium to large bonsai. I ended up growing from seed because I could not find one in the size that I wanted.

The largest of the ones I have is just about two years old now and in fairness I had not been giving it as much attention as it deserved. I had let it grow until the trunk was about 2" thick at the base and then I cut it back to about 2' in height as I had some buds coming out in the region of the trunk where I had envisioned some branches to be. In retrospect I think I should have been more patient and let it grow some more.

I had grown them partly as an experiment to see if it was possible to do and because no-one else had used it (to my knowledge). Also I am trying out how well pond baskets do with different species. It now has a leader which is growing strongly, as we are coming out of winter I am preparing to feed it heavily for the growth surge that Spring will bring.

I will post a picture when I get a chance, but be forewarned its very, very early in its development.

Regards
Nigel
