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

Incredible! Thanks for the info, Jose Luis.

Indeed, most ficus in this gallery is over 30 years, parts of them over 50 years. The oldest one is no 7, that nearly 300 years from Tainan City. The Owner : Su Chen Wuen.
Taiwan bonsai is gredually popular after second world war . Before that also popular in Tainan,Chung hua & Lu Kang city , ficus is the only variety in that age.

Thank you so very much for posting incredible photos of Ficus from show Jose Luis. Mr. Lo, thanks for factual information on ages of the trees. It is always a surprise. The No. 7 fig I would never have guessed because first two branches look young(at least compared to Lo's microcarpa figs). Saw Jim Smith(Durastone USA) yesterday and he showed me his first(and oldest) Ficus Salicaria that had top blown off from Hurricane Wilma. Many others he has have larger/detailed trunk/nebari and twists to branches. Was very surprised. The origional owner of tree usually most accurate historian. Jim is graciously donating a number of his Ficus trees to permanent collection to preserve history. What a great human being facing pain/suffering at this time. He mentioned that his oldest fig strunk by Hurricane Wilma on his wife's birthday. Her name is Wilma. Dustin Mann

I guess Jose Rivera is not happy with my reply, since my qualifications and knowledge on the subject of Taiwanese bonsai do not please him.

Thanks Lo Min Hsuan for corroborating the estimates i shared with the other members and congratulations on your wonderful event. You outdid yourself, honestly.

Rob Addonizio,

The tree in my avatar is a Rhododendron in He Huashan mountain in Taiwan. The ramification is spectacular and i have learned a lot from observing this tree. earlier this month i had the pleasure of seeing it again. Eachand every time i go to He Huashan, I contemplate diverse learning experiences. Taiwan is truly blessed and i love it as a second home.

Kind regards,
Jose Luis
