Cascade Casuarina in my new shed.

Post  Guest on Thu Mar 24, 2011 10:44 am

Hi IBC.
I made an extension to my ever increasing works (AKA-addiction) to bonsai... my new shed, where I can do heavy works on bonsai day and night.

The first customer is my huge cascade casuarina.



saw some unwanted trunk and heavy looking branch...


repotted from this cheap concrete pot.




new haircut, new skin tone, and new shoes...



regards,
jun Smile

Excellent piece of material, excellent styling and an equally excellent work area and did I forget the pot..... a very nice one too.... Even though it will be a while for additional foliage to fill in a bit... great stuff...

Jun, that's impressive.

When 3-d bonsai are smashed into a 2-d photo so much is lost. So, from the photo, I feel I'm looking at the front of the lower tree but the side of the upper tree. The first question that pops into my mind is - could these trees be seperated? Maybe it won't work, and maybe they don't need to be - it's so hard to tell from the photo. Can we see it from the sides and back?

That reddish brown pot was a cheap concrete pot????

Hi Jun
The cascade is coming on really fine. I see that you are starting to prune the 'needles' to compact and form the pads. Once you start you will have a lot to do almost every few days during the growing season. At least that is my experience over here. Have fun with your new shed.

Thank you Ravi.

It will only take 45 to 60 days max to fill in...foliage and branches that is. This is one of the fastest growing tree that I know of once the tree established its foothold in the pot. See my other casuarina slanting tree with the indicated months in development.

Cosmos,
thanks!
you are absolutely right... this trees grows very fast and always needs attention to maintain the details.

Hi Russell,
thank you.
Yes, it is only one tree. And that is what so wonderful about this tree, I don't know how it twist from the inside out. even the shari and jins are moving from the bottom then moved to the rear and then move up and even inside to the tree and somewhere else.

here are some photos of the other angles.

Old photo of the back side, used to be the front, then I thought it to be so simple to be the front.


close up of the twisted shari below



Old photo of the new front before any of wood work I made, The horizontal big branch was I think the old trunk.



Yes it was a cheap concrete pot we made here. I just ordered the rough finish concrete pot then do the final finishing works.
Here it was, in my attempt to re finish it, It did not pass the quality standard.

Yes, I see it much clearer now in that last picture and the close-up of the shari. What a tree! And I'm sure the pictures don't do it any justice!

thanks Russell.
2D doesn't always works even when presenting 2D to hide faulty designs. That's why I tried as much as I can to present other angles of my trees here.

Hi there Jun,

The Philippines is fast becoming another "Casuarina powerhouse" there Smile

I like the deadwood on this one. I hope business is going well for you, so you will not run out of room.

Regards.

Thanks Daiviet.

That's why I am posting more of my casuarinas (and I hope Other Filipinos will like the specie) there are only few casuarina bonsais here actually, just got lucky that I got some of the good materials and are surviving so far. It is a very good bonsai material and if more will focus on this specie it will surely lessen the burden on the over harvested Phempis...then probably and hopefully we can become a "Casuarina powerhouse".

On the business side, thanks for the concern. bounce I still have few rooms...on my roof and my neighbors yard.

Thank You John.

I am pinching the "needles" old and new ones. every other week. this specie will keep you very busy if you are in the secondary stage of development.
Running out of room? What's that?, didn't notice, been busy all the time. I'll talk to my neighbor if he wants a free bonsai display in his yard. hehehe.

Hi Jun,

You have done a good creation. Congratulations. If it will not destroy the rooting system, I suggest to cut off the growth in the upper part.

Budi,

Thank you!
I'm glad you appreciate the casuarina. The new branch and foliage formation are still very young, When I got a massive root formation already I'll study your suggestion I think by that time the tree will be able to handle the added stress.

Jun, I like this view the best. The top filling in has made a big difference.
The round pot is a cool match.

Thanks Rob.

I can't decide on the best angle yet. That is the reason for the round pot, Some Taiwanese experts/"masters" commented on the tree when they saw it personally and they like the first picture/angle to be developed as the front. I am glad the pot suits your taste too, I don't need to change or lift the tree from the pot just in case the viewing angle in the future change.

What kind of glaze is on that pot? Very metallic looking and goes well with the tree.

Thanks FM.


...this is a very nice specie for bonsai, I am developing this particular tree for only 18 months now. Highly recommended for lazy and impatient people. hehehe

another year and it will be super refined, then it perhaps it will be truly "awesome" by then.

BTW guys, this latest picture was the original back angle. keeping it nice too, just in case I got bored with the original front with many shari.
