Bald Cypress Bonsai "Hollow-13" - Year 3 - Problems/Cleaning/Styling

Post  BillsBayou on Fri Feb 20, 2015 3:33 pm

This is video 3 of the tree I collected in 2013. Development on the higher apex has gone very well. The tree has had a rough year trying to develop it's lower apex, however; storms, squirrels, stress. Numerous small roots are useless in function and style and will be removed to show off the impressive nebari. A large dead spot is discovered and will need addressing in future styling. The higher apex receives a large copper wire bend. The lower apex candidate is an ugly branch that I leave in place to keep that side of the tree growing hoping for more growth to give me a better option. The "flat-top" style of the tree is coming into focus with heavy bending and improved branch placement.

This year's video (third in the series):
