Jose,
Exquisite examples of Ficus.
Can you tell me why the bark on the last tree looks strange? Looks like spots all over it.
Thanks.

This is an example of great horticulture talent, growing methods, attention to detail and a 360 day growing season.

Ciao.......Leonardo

Ditto to last post about year round(365) training/pinching and attentive horticulture. So many beautiful large specium figs. I would guess their shohin were also amazing. Fascination with the very big and very liitle. Last one my favorite because of detailing sub-branching. Only addition in future for perfect tree would be graft of wider nabari spread for balance to amaxing branches. Thanks so much for posting these. Dustin Mann Rolling Eyes

I'd have a mouth full of bugs from walking around with it hanging open in awe of those trees.

Thanks for posting. Indeed a great event. I was there after the opening ceremony and spend the whole day in Waan Jing Garden.

By the way, the tree is a Premna Microphilla, nursery grown for over 15 years.

Kind regards,
Jose Luis

BTW, Jose Luis, your avatar has you (I think) standing by a tree in a photo. I am curious as to what that tree is. Could you share some info?

Thanks,

Incredible examples of Ficus bonsai. Can you give us any indication of the age in training, and estimated total age of any of these?

Sorry is impossible for me determine the age of any of this tree. Only the owner of the tree know.

Luis,

Some of the ficus bonsai you see in the pictures are 15 to 20 years old. Others are a bit older. Considering that Taiwan bonsai history is only about 50 years old, the advancement on bonsai is astonishing.

By the way, ficus bonsai history in Taiwan dates about 300 years, but NONE of the ficus you see in the pictures is from that period.

Kind regards,
Jose Luis
