Budi, your tree is beautiful. Would you mind sharing some history of this tree. Where did it come from? How long have you been growing it? Where did the pot come from?, etc. Thank you!

Budi. Thank you so much for sharing another one of your masterpiece bonsai. That trunk line/bark looks 1000yrs old. Very natural. Of course setting fruit just adds to feeling of being with nature's creation/survival. In addition, that pot blends so well with tree ...like heritage of our past. Funny... I have that style pot in oribe/green rectangle(imported around 1991), but my USA buddies always hate it. Dustin Mann Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Salut, Todd

Thanks for all the good comments.

This tree has been with me for 5 years. It was from a bonsai seller in Bekasi, a small town near Jakarta. I was really lucky getting it. I just made a little cut or removed some small branches and changed the position. I put it in a new pot in 2007 that I got from one pot seller in Jakarta. It was an imported Chinese pot.








At that time there was no fruits at all, so that I have to treat it to bear the fruits.

Budi,

Like i told you when i first saw it, this tree is awesome. I would only try to remove the rock that is embedded in the hanging trunk. Once it is gone, the tree will have superior trunk movement and a better line.

Thanks for posting.

Your friend,

Jose Luis

Jose Luis,

At last I just decided to keep it, just to add the naturalness of the plant.

Raghav,

Diospyros montana is native to Indonesia. It was first discovered as bonsai material in 1985 when people in Indonesia was in the high mood of looking for new bonsai species. The person got the tree wa called "Tam". He thought that the plant he got was an ulmus. Proudly he showed it to his fellow bonsai friends. "I got a nice ulmus!" he shouted. When his friends who knew ulmus well saw the tree, they all laughed and one of them said "Ii is MUSTAM". What he meant was ulmus of Tam. Since nobody knows the real name of the wild plant, up to now people called this plant mustam.

Diospyros montana is a dioecus plant. One plant only has male flower, where as the other has both male and female organs. One that can bear fruits we called it a female plant, where as the one that has only flowers we called it a male plant. Here is the male and female plants in one display that I called it "Yin and Yang"


This is the male flowers


and this is the female flower


The fruit will stay in the tree for more than six months to get ripe.



The taste of the fruit is a bit bitter. People usually do not eat it. Anyhow, birds like to eat the ripe one, so that you have to protect them when most of them are about mature.
