progress - monster pink pixie

Post  kauaibonsai on Mon Jan 12, 2015 5:57 am

this is the fourth or fifth post regarding development of a very large pink pixie stump I was fortunate to collect in February of 2011.  Since the last report in  November of 2013,  the tree was potted into a blue glazed rectangle and left to grow. during this time, the canopy has filled out and is slowly becoming wider and fuller all around the trunk; eventually to offset the visual dominance of the massive wood.  Yesterday,  the tree came off the bench  (I can actually lift it now because of the drastic trunk reduction) and the next phase began.  current work,  mostly roughed out by end of  day today,  consisted of heavy carving to streamline the flow of the trunk on the right side from the soil line upwards.   If you compare pictures,  you will note that the ugly bulge is now gone.  the fresh wood will dry thoroughly before sanding, flame and preservative application.  meanwhile, the existing deadwood was brushed with another coat of water and carpenters glue to keep rot at bay. The outline of a bonsai is there. as time passes, the tree will look better and better.

happy new year,

Hello friends

posting an update on the growth of a collected pink pixie .  2 pictures dated today, November 2015.  The canopy is filling out softening the impact of the huge trunk.  ways  to go yet,  but it's getting there.

best wishes,   sam
