Jim,

I got the cascade pot several years ago from Michael Hagedorn, who used to (still??) operate Crataegus pottery and made very nice bonsai pots. It was the smallest he made. Michael has since extensively studied bonsai in Japan and I don't think he's making pots much any more. I may be wrong. Hopefully.

The second pot is by an unknown potter from Japan. I got it and the next one (Tokonome ware) at the Ueno Green Club in Tokyo a few years ago. It is VERY difficult to get attractive small pots in the USA. Except, of course, the blue "bathtub" pots from China. So I picked up several last time we were in Tokyo.

Because of my fondness for the wee trees, I now have a shelf full of tiny pots to choose from.

Two more -- a bit larger.

A Satsuki azalea. Flowers are huge. Only one allowed. Tokonome pot bought from the Bonsai Monestary in GA.



A crape myrtle - from a cutting. Pot: Japanese from the Green Club. Broken and mended.

Jim,
Hi.
since i dont have a shelf full of lovely tiny pot like yours ( which I envy much). i must improvise...



I let the roots pass thru the hole beneath the rock, and let the tree and the rock in a plate filled with sand to have a faster growth rate.



top view and hand for scale. lovely moss.

Jim, Jun, thanks for showing. I am really enjoying this very quiet display.

Jim, I have a few tiny pots as well, but I not as tidy as you. I hope to see your crepe and azalea in bloom.

Jun, I like your improvised pots. I have a few weirdos as well. If I get some time this evening I'll show a few.

Also, the problem I have with Mame' or the smaller pea size, on my side is how quickly they grow out of proportion, losing all the delicate qualities, that let you accept the idea that this is a minute tree.

I have only recently been notified, that many folk are using on-line translators. Please accept my apologies if I am forcing you to have to translate twice to respond.
I shall try to be brief and as clear as is possible when responding in future.

Thanks again.

Not the weird pots, but had these on hand.
If I did it correctly they should appear lifesize;
