    Cork Bark Black Pine

    Hello guys! £70 for this cork bark, do you think it's a good deal? If not, how would you pick a cork bark bonsai? Do you think it's a good time (autumn) to be buying bonsai?

    Why do trunks cork/roughen up quicker in pots than in the ground? How to speed up the process?

    I hear that trees in the ground take awhile before rough bark is visible. Is it because of relative proportions? I imagine the speed at which trunks thicken might outpace the pace which the cork/rough bark forms. In theory, if you wanted to speed this process of rough bark formation in the pot...

    Upright California Native Knobcone Pine

    Hello folks! I was tempted to include this for the five-year native challenge, but it wouldn’t be fair since I’ve been training this little guy in a pot for the past 6 years. It’s a Knobcone Pine I rescued from a garden that was being remodeled back in 2015. Some say it’s an “Urban Yamadori”...

    My Cork bark Jade

    Hello, I'm a beginner to growing bonsai. I was wondering how often can I water my Cork bark Jade? During the summer I would water it daily when the temperature was 80 degrees Fahrenheit. But now it is getting a bit colder and I've been keeping my Jade inside by the window to still get sunlight...

    Corkbark JBP, ‘Taihei’

    This is a Corkbark JBP cultivar that showed promising bark in the photos. I bought it from a grower, Dave DeWire, out in WA in 2009. I’ve showed pix over the years, but it hasn’t had its own thread yet. These are as offered from the grower in 2009: It’s about 24” tall.

    Cork Oak Trunk Chop

    Looking to acquire a cork oak and have several options available. All options would require a trunk chop. Looking for advice on what would be best time of year to complete and any limitations on trunk size or any other precautions I should be aware of.

    Memorial cork bark JBP

    Donald Green was a friend and former president of the Houston Bonsai Society. This was one of his trees - a young cork bark black pine. Rough stock. Growing in a heavy soil. Color was a bit off. I thinned it a bit and pulled a few needles to let light inside about 1 1/2 years ago. Here it is...

    Corkbark JBP, 'Hachi Gen'

    This Hachi-Gen was one of about 8 cultivars I worked with. I bought it because it was cutting-grown. It came from Brent Walston's Evergreen Gardenworks. Here is the description from his catalog: Pinus thunbergii 'Hachi Gen' (Cork Bark Black Pine) We obtained this cultivar from Ken Sugimoto...

    Some photos are around the forum on this, but no thread, so here's the development of this one since purchased from Don Blackmond in fall 2008. The backdrop here is a standard card table, for a bit of scale:
