Awesome little tree. The shallow pot makes it look even larger.

Looking at my five shohin, you can see that materials dug from the ground, whether it is yamadori (from wild) or niwadori (from garden/farm), are much better. It is easier to develop and the final result is more spectacular. The Taiwanese have produced some spectacular bonsai from materials dug from the garden or farm. Most if not all of the famous Taiwanese Juniper were planted over 30 years ago. They also grow most of their ficus. There is a lesson to be learned here. I hope the younger people doing bonsai are inspired to grow their material in the ground for the future. I am posting the 5 shohin for an easier comparison. Cheers, CJ.
