Hi IBC!

Restyled the tree today.


a. today



b. long big extended branch on the left removed


c. Small top branch removed



d.Straight rear trunk removed



e. this is how big it is...for pot reference.











I am still contemplating of removing the first huge branch on the left or jinned it. I am aiming for a flat top acacia style in the future, so my target for the canopy is still going to be wider. Any thought?

...Any suggestion too for the proper pot or container, slab maybe?


regards,
jun Smile

yes Robert.

I really like the African savannah looks. And you have beaten me posting it first hehehe:P . I was thinking a few months ago of making a "penjing" with African motif. I thought it might be original (but not any more, hehehe).

I'll post something original "penjing" here later, and I'll be needing your advice. It's morbid affraid but at least original, still in the study stage though.

Hi Robert and other weird minds,

These are couple of my weird new idea. I wanted to incorporate something that was commonly found near or associated with trees.
Then I thought of a car, near a tree or parked under a tree, but it will look so lame and the car will look to detached with the tree right?. So this is my solution...


The car will be die cast and will be allowed to look old and the tree would callus at some part of the old die cast car.

This is my car fused on to tree...



This is my tree over car...




....I am serious. drunken

I like the idea Jun..very creative. You must see some of Nick Lenz' crazy creation then, here is one of them...



By the way, about the new penjing creation, I will also post you the one I am going to make tomorrow, I won't say it's original, but my ego says..it's something-else... tongue Bagpiper

In one of our exhibition sometime ago, one Indonesian guy made a grave yard designed with ficus with the wild aereal roots, completed with tombstones and few "flying" ghosts..very spooky and interesting.... What a Face

Or maybe I should make a penjing showing a beach with nudists... sunny
Hey guys, any other crazy ideas ?..let's do a brain-storming......

No. not the entire branch, probably the protruding horizontal branch only, the extended branch right after the branch that grows upward. but I will not do it yet. I will wait first until I got the whole structure of the tree. cutting branches can always wait.

Khaimraj,

Thanks for the sketch! that's the idea I'm working on right now. with slight variation on foliage formation, with the small leaves the specie have it is ideal to have different foliage pads and layers.

Iben,

thanks for the compliment!

ndleong,

Thanks.
I believe this specie is endemic to the Philippines and Indonesia only. and not highly exploited (...YET...) as bonsai material.

Hello Jun
I would like to introduce some VNmese tree also called "bluebell " the bark almost looks the same but the leaves are different in shape.
May I post some pictures via your thread ?

Wow, this tree has great foliage in general but that last one posted by Proton in flower is off the charts as far as foliage goes.

I really like the graveyard ficus Jun. I'm still at the stage of trying to make a good bonsai. The hobby is still not 'easy' enough for me to horse around with humorous themes and ideas. Maybe one day!

Thanks Jesse!

You'll (We'll) get there I am sure. The more time you (we) spend on trees the better we will become. Like they said "practice makes perfect".

Qui,

Thanks!
the last one with flowers and tiny leaves are very nice material for bonsai.
Though, I haven't seen that small leaf variety here.
