I shall post a lot when I get home. For now I am just keeping a diary. There will be lots of interesting info when I reach home. Oyakata said trees grown in pots are better and more expensive than trees from the ground. I guess they are more refined....maybe the root system is different also.???

I have styled lots of trees while here at school, but thought I should show you this tree, I am really proud of.
It took me two days to style it. Oyakata said you did this???? I said yes. Then he asked if Taige helped me....Taige was 6 years with Kimura and is his son. I said no...I did it all by myself. He said:
This is perfect! Then he told me I am a sansai now and that I should teach Mark how to style like that...so now I am called sansai by Mark, and Neli San....he he he! I came here a total newbie....and I had never seen how to style junipers....now I have impressed my oyakata 4 times....and got the thumbs up.
I am one happy bonsai mama!
Here is my tree.
This is how I styled the pads. They now need to grow and just be pinched, but the tree is styled now.
I am failing toots images...maybe someone can post them for me.

You do a great thing by studying bonsai in Japan and writing here what you learn!
I appreciate it!

Thanks Taner! I don't know if you noticed how many branches I took of, some were very big, and I made Jin from them. You can see one front top left. I was so scared. It is expensive material. Ones I decided ot the position of the pads I just went styling them one by one without removing too much material. Ones I figured which branches go where and what I don't need I chopped them. I took a lot off. The hardest part was the apex....it had lots of holes, and if I filled one another one opened....so it took some time to figure how to do it and arrange it. I was also scared oyakata will take the broom, but he loved it....said : perfection!

Yvonne, thanks!
It is just too time consuming for me to post pictures now. But I will post a lot when I get home. Also how junipers are styled....it is so different from other trees.

Neli,

someone told me about your problem with importing trees in soil from Japan to Zambia.

I have imported trees from Louisiana bare rooted and plant quarantine held them for a week. They also had to be treated for nematodes in Louisiana.
They flew down with me in a simple large cardboard box. Roots surrounded by moist tissue paper and in a plastic bag.
I arrived home in the rainy season.

One week with plant quarantine and no contact from me. Nothing died.
Just make sure you have somewhere cool, and bright with humidity and you should be okay.
They will need to stay in that situation, until you see new growth.

I imported over 80 trees at all sizes under 1m.
Hope you see this.
Khaimraj

*Repeated that situation twice with the U.K. around 40 plants each time. No problems.
