my new casaurina yamadori

Post  john5555leonard on Tue Feb 14, 2012 3:18 am

hi, i,d seen this tree a few months ago[img][/img][img][/img]but on another inspection i thought i,d give it a go . the tree was quite difficult because it was growing flat against the soil, it took a few tries to get in in a pot without having the roots stuck up in the air . now i,m quite happy with it and think it will make a good tree . i, am not cutting anything yet until it gets established . i,m not quite sure where to put the apex , so any ideas would be welcome . pic 1 front pic2 back . regards john

As it grows out start selecting branches and start wiring.

Do these make nice bonsai with those feathery leaves? Kinda reminds me of a Canadian Cypress in it's long and way to flexible even for wire to work.

This is a really interesting family of plants. The leaves look like needles, but are segmented. Some have longer leaves than others, and although some may consider it cheating, the leaves can be broken at the segments to shorten them.

What most don't know is that the jointed "leaves" are actually branches. They will have "leaves" sprout out of them and on and on...

That is not cheating since that is actually pruning. Wink
