Surprise surprise - Pinus Thunbergiana [ spelling?]
Second oldest I have about 14 years and the little
pot to the front is this years child.
Seed from England.

Concrete pot is from a cast in an ice cream container,just a cement plus sand mix, plus a little colour.

Some 26 " tall and 36 " or so wide.

Why only me and Budi Sir?
hah ha..thanks for the post.
The trees are fine but need more training,i would have trained them in big pots for a longer time than putting them in bonsai pots.
Let it be..its your way and how you like to do it..keep it up

Referring to the last photo, may I ask the reason why all the bonsai pots are having a plastic sheet over them?

gm.it.seacom,

chuckle, it's the wet season and I don't prune, because they need the extra leaves to handle the excess water. I have too many to lean.

Ahh, you need to know the species. The Tamarind is handled in greater detail in a separate post. The sageretia is to show you what you can get from a cutting and allowed to freely grow since 1996. It is not easy to thicken the trunk and cuts never heal.

The indoor oak is to warn you if you read older bonsai books about the then useful plants for indoor bonsai. The trunk will thicken, but that is all the leaf reduction, before damaging the tree. But the flowers are heavenly in scent and the plant encourages moss like a dream. Grows well in a 1 inch pot.
I have a larger one being trained, but it will be 5 years more.
Very trouble free.

The oxy, is in the most sensibly shallow pot I can allow. Those leaves are about an 1 inch and a huh and are able to suck that heavier compost based soil dry in half a day.I get 3 months after transplanting for the shrub to take 1 day to dry out the soil.
The roots on this plant resemble the azaleas.
Will drop it's leaves for one month and cover it self with stars the size of a Serissa's.
And it is grown for the flowers. Some scent.
Healing capacity is also amazing.
Trunks cross 12" and max height I have seen is 14 feet. Stunning in the dry season.

The pepper is to show you what happens if you take chance on an unknown local shrub. To encourage you to experiment.

The Fustic is a possible elm type tree. Lots of twigs and, the leaves turn yellow before all fall. Excellent surface roots.

The texas ebony- well try one. See in the Bonsai Questions - topic - Texas Ebony.

Black Pine - in the Tropics - ask around. Been testing clip and grow.

Tamarind, in the shape of the ones in the rice paddies. Flowers / Fruits and is not trying to be a shimpaku wannabe.

Bonsai is a love of trees, not styles. At least for me Laughing

I was not trying to impress you. If I wanted to do that I would show you Fukien Tea, Gmelina H, Southern Chinese Elms, Ilex Yaupon, Olea Africana, and so on- Next year.
It was to show you some of the variety that you have in the tropics, other than Ficus, and that Bonsai is not about winning competitions, but the love that one has for nature.

Ficus is easy to grow, difficult to design and hold in that design, and it should not look like a shrub, or hedge. You will waste a lot of time, time better spent on other trees.
Stay Well.

Hello Alexandra,

the older members of the IBC, will probably remember my comments on a little black bird with white and red spots on it's tail. The - [FIEND Twisted Evil ] cute birdie is about 3 inches [10 cm] in size and is able to rip moss out of some 20 or 30 plants daily.

AND is unafraid of the two yard cats. affraid

I can slowly get moss to grow in the dry season [ End December to around beginning of June or so.],
so everytime I transplant my trees [ after January 1st,] I replace a few pieces of the previous moss lawn.
It's a local moss, that I found by trial and error.
Birdie waits until April, when the moss is lightly covering the soil and then strikes.

DEATH from above. I find moss all over the place. It's thrown around.

As ugly as it might be I have to use mosquito netting to protect the moss.

By the way I could never harm the little fiend, and I am sure it has to be a family, soooooo many years.

Now ask me about the sometime brown locusts that hunger in the dry season for tender leaves Laughing
Until.

Khaimraj Seepersad, your narrative is very interesting and gm.it.seacom should be very happy having such a friend like you!

Doesn't these little feathery members of the family take care of those brown locusts? Very Happy

Alexandra,

for that type of locust, the birds have to get them when their flying. Plus, it's partially my fault, the entire yard is surrounded by Chinese Bamboo, easy to hide.
Stay well.

Mr.Khimraj,
for your kind information not a single species other than the tamarind in your post is available in India.
And what makes you feel that we(Budi Sir and me(gourab)) dont have love for nature because we participate in shows?I am nothing in front of budi sir and i only take tips from him.please dont make unnecessary comparisons

gm.it.seacom,

I do wish you would take your time reading my posts.

I am lending you my experience, so you don't waste a lot of time, on your way to becoming a professional as you expressed.

For example - The Indoor Oak - was suggested as far back as 1962, by Ernesta Ballard in her book - The Art of Training Plants. It really isn't the buddelia that is used for bonsai - the buddelia that is the spinosa or other. The same for the Clerodendron - loves lies bleeding - it's the one that comes out of Barbados that is used.

Every new tropical found has to be tested. Usually only someone young can do this, many times the tree/shrub does not work.

"that Bonsai is not about winning competitions, but the love that one has for nature."

This line is a caution to spend more time learning to grow healthy trees ........... [ for you]
There is no comment to anyone other than you in these lines.

Ah - the Pemphis came from Budi as a gift of seeds - the person who asked me to ask Budi, never wrote to Budi to say thank you. I only found out about that a few weeks ago and that person left for overseas, so the request for the seed was a waste of Budi's good time. I wrote to Budi the same time I wrote to you in a p.m and apologized for the above.
I showed the seedling to try and say to Budi - see I am making up for the rudeness.

Alexandra got it in her post to me.[6.26 p.m]

Wishing you well.
Khaimraj

Hi Khaimraj,

Sorry that I did not respond quickly. I was absent visiting the forum for some time. Your Texas ebony is very nice.
The pemphis looks not very healthy. Have you regularly sprayed with salt water? Do not use too much organic soil on the bonsai mix.
