Premna...almost done !

Post  Robert Steven on Sat Jul 16, 2011 2:32 pm

Three years ago, when I got this material at the very corner of my friend's garden, I was wondering if it would survive because it was laying out from the broken pot with almost no roots. Unique, but yet very challenging to find the correct line and angle...

And this is how it looks like now after three years... Still working on the ramification structure to reduce the leaves size....

Very nice movement Robert.
...Premma seems to be your tree of choice lately. I am wondering, if it is the same as our local specie-Premma odorata blanco. What is the flower of your trees look like? My premmas doesn't reduce leaves as small as the premmas in Indonesia.

Yes, Jun..Premna is one of my favourite. There are more than 200 species of Premna, the best so far is P.mycrophylla from Taiwan and P. Serratifolia from Indonesia. Some species are not suitable for bonsai.

You can read my article about Premna at my blog : http://robert-steven.ofbonsai.org/articles/ or read the full article and hunting process on my second book "Mission of Transformation"...

Here is the flowers/fruits and the leaves size reduction of different species...

The worst is one locally called Wahong Sayur (Vegetable Premna) which normally grow in land and used by the locals to cook with seafoods to eliminate the fishy smell. The branches are very sloopy, the odour of the leaves are stronger and the size cannot be reduced..

nice development robert. your eye for creating beauty from confusion is special. some of my bigger ones are getting close. if I could just solve the scale problem, a few would be very close to done.

best wishes, sam

oh BTW, whats the word from from piko?

best wishes, sam

Thanks Robert...
I Think my premma is either letter "A" or "B".

I'll post it for comparison.
