Beackea Frutescens Bonsai

Post  Zaratul on Wed Mar 10, 2010 1:18 pm

Hello Guys!
I am from Malaysia. I started to fall in love with the art of bonsai since almost two years ago. The tree that did it was a 'lime berry'. I was so amazed when I saw a lime berry bonsai tree which was flowering and fruiting at the same time at a friend's house. It was really a sight to behold. As I was becoming more and more enchanted with bonsai I started to drive around looking for a bonsai master. I was really suprised that in my local district alone there are more than ten bonsai masters who have plied their trade more than fifteen years crafting magnificient Bonsais. All of them have one thing in common. They have all mastered the science of cultivating this tree called 'cucur atap' by the locals or better internationally known as Beackea Frutescens. The appaling thing is that the tree is available in abundance around the area I'm living in and I never knew that it could be turned into thousand dollars worth of masterpieces. However I also found out that the tree's mortality rate is very high. Only 2-3 out of 20 bonsai bases collected from the wild would die in a matter of weeks. The ones that survived have been turned into wonderful bonsais and have been gracing the local bonsai competitions since many years ago. These are some of the great Beackea Frutescens Bonsais:
