Hello and welcome back! Looking forward seeing more of your trees. I am curious about the use of wooden planks as pot/tray for saikei.

BTW, I just came back after 2 years myself! Smile

Hello all...Saikei Empty Wooden trays explanation...

Post  Guest Fri Sep 12, 2014 12:29 pm

FLW was inspired by Japanese architecture and their extensive use of Oak in their Cultural Everyday and used it extensively, I think it fits perfectly into the Bonsai Display Arena ...WDYT ???

The smallish Saikei in the middle of the picture measure appx. 8" x 6" x 4"H, they are hard milled Oak stained in Mission Oak, I rubberize the bottoms to retain Soil and Water.

I use Chinese Ying rock, Moss and misc ground covers ie "Babys Tears" then bring an Indoor Bonsai into the setting...

It makes, IMO, a perfect Bonsai Accented Desk or End Table piece for those that appreciate Bonsai but do not have the time or energy to become involved in Bonsai Gardening.

I make small Saikei for myself, my family, and for sale at various Farmers Markets, Craig's List, Ebay, Etc...
I sell them for $38.00 each or more if I create a larger, more extensive setting...

This may be more info then you wanted but I felt a need to explain...

I like that use of deadwood in the forest planting.
