What species used for bonsai are actively positively phototropic? I think I only have one. My Chamaecyparis pisifera turns toward the light so quickly that I have to turn it every other day, or its branches (and trunks) begin to all bend in one direction.

It's interesting . . . but a bit annoying, too -- especially when I'm away from home any length of time.

Are there others that are so obvious? And no, it doesn't really help with wiring -- except, perhaps, for a slant or windswept style.

Hi Jim

I have the "dwarf" version, and I just had to rotate it yesterday having noticed that it's "good" side has really grown to the sun, I'll keep an eye on it over the next few days but its funny you should post this cause I just noticed this myself yesterday. Not as pronounced as what you may be experiencing...but noticeable.
