    This is a young cork bark JBP that is healthily hanging from its terracota training pot. Doesn't look like a really beautiful cascade right now, any suggestions?

    Flawed Black Pine

    http://imgur.com/a/c1pB3 Picked up this Black Pine today with some flaws. The reverse taper, circular roots and such cannot be repaired. I need some help developing the style and future of this tree. What do you guys think? Should I tilt, jin, or some combination of both?

    Black Pine Seedling Cuttings

    Here's an inexpensive and rewarding project. There are lots of resources on this - I think that most of them follow the method published in "Matsuo, K., Black Pine from Seed, Bonsai Today #20, pp. 39-50". Here are some great links: Black Pine from Seed A Few Pine Seeds, Six Years Later How to...
