That exposed root azalea looks good Xuan.

I have been so busy lately that while squeezing in work on trees, have not taken any pics. Here is a Japanese Black Pine shohin, 6 inches tall by just under 10 inches tail to root, grown by me from seed in 10 years. Pot by Luis Fountainils, of South Florida USA.

Great results on a short time frame, Rob.
Here's a small Zelkova...

Hi Xuan,
Yes, my wife, Jane, and I will be there by late morning on Friday. Look for a middle aged man, bald head with a ponytail in back and multiple pierced ears. I have a bear paw tattoo on my neck. I will keep my eyes and ears open and say hi if I think I see you. I hope we can meet!

I like your satsuki! Pretty flowers!

Best,
Todd

Great looking flowers. Maybe you can consider a green glazed pot for it?

Here is a Haggarbush (Escambron in Spanish) Clerodendrum I bought from Pedro Morales at the US National Exhibition. Its a tropical tree - this one came from Puerto Rico. It had few branches when purchased.
Grows fairly fast. It's maybe a year or 2 from having a full canopy and ready for a shohin stand. The pot is a budget Japanese pot. It was featured previously in this thread.

Thanks for your comment Rob, may be something else because I already have 2 Satsuki (one small and one medium size) in green glaze pots.

Sansai Pot in Action

Post  Rob Kempinski on Wed May 25, 2011 1:11 pm

I picked up a few Sansai Kiln pots from Tom Benda while in Europe this past week. One of them is already in action, a cascade pot featuring a Premna grown by me from a small cutting. Now that the branches are where they are needed and that it is in a smaller pot, work will focus on canopy development with subsequent much smaller leaves.

Oh, Rob, thank You a lot. This pleases me. It always does, when I see a good tree in my pot.
Just my kiln is SANSAI :-)

Morten's photos of the shohin in Japan fired me up to do some work on mine. Here is a Ficus microcarpa still in development. This is a slow one to grow for some reason. It belonged to a fellow club member that won the trunk in a club raffle. He doesn't do shohin so he gave it to me.
The wire was digging in so I just rerouted it - I'll take it off in a month or so.
I'm probably going to need to grow the apex long to get it to add a bit more taper.
Pot by John Pitt of the UK.



Let's see how the IBC shohin are doing. Bring on the parade!

Rob,
That cascading Premna is a fantastic little tree. I am and always have been crazy about cascading bonsai and this one really gets me going. I have my eye on a very large cascading ficus from a local vendor. It will be a lot of work in the winter keeping it indoors at times so I'm considering all this before I buy it. I have also started a few mame cascades form a few thick roots from one of my chinese elms but it'll be a few years for those to be something although they are coming along quite nicely now. I envy that little tree of yours, good work . Very Happy

Tom - glad you enjoyed it. It has been developing quickly. I'll post another photo in a few weeks.
Premna is an amazing bonsai species. It would be great if it were more readily available in the States. I'm growing all mine from cuttings from one small plant.
As for the cascading Ficus, zone envy is tough but you have to do what you have to do. albino

Here is another shohin, a Willow Leaf Ficus in a Sarah Rayner pot.

Thanks Morten,

Update to the Clerodendrum shohin.

Russell agreed that it needed a new pot so I did a repot this weekend. From a while ago.

Now in a Japanese hand signed pot. Any ideas to get the white stuff off the bottom of the pot. It actually seems like it is in the glaze - maybe I can call it patina. sunny

Tom,
Lookin' good and healthy.
I hope you saved the pot. It was by Helen Brabander in Cleveland area who no longer makes bonsai pots due to arthritis problems.

Rob,
I really like that Texas Ebony, one of my favorite tropicals.
