Jim,

Nice little tree.

Growing bonsai this small has always scared the grits out of me. What type of watering schedule does this little privet require?

I'm always concerned that if you misjudge the watering schedule something this size would dry up fast.

More of a question than a suggestion. Directly in front (as seen in the photo) the trunk at the base of the foliage, there are several larger leaves. If a few of these leaves were plucked, would that open the view of the bottom of the canopy enough to show off the lower trunk and branch movement and division?

I agree with the tartanned fellow from Illinois.

I only criticize the trees I like : I like the break in the trunk a lot, it is enhanced beautifuly by the deadwood.

Hey, Vance, small is beautiful, isn't it ?... Cool

I really appreciate the simplicity of these little things. I have a good feeling looking at them, thanks for sharing.

Jay . . . soil for the little ones has more organics in it, so they don't dry out as fast. On hot summer days, though, I will take up the hose for them. And yes, I could remove a leaf or two.

Ian and Stone Monkey . . . Sorry you don't like the pot. I kinda like the urn-shaped pot for this. I like to play around with pots for the little ones. I got this one in Japan a few years ago.

I think I need to spread the canopy a bit. Eh???

Thanks for the kind words.
