    I Call This One....

    A miracle if it survives. 🤣 Seriously I haven't seen such bad roots before. I have no idea why this was in a 3 gal container. Most of the root mass was attached to what appeared to be a tap or main root that shot out at a weird angle straight down. The other half of the roots had VERY few...

    Question on Ebihara Technique w/ Younger Trees

    So I have mostly younger tress around 1" in trunk size. The few I was thinking of trying the Ebihara technique on, but I was wondering if it may be better to wait till they are larger in trunk size or if that matters? My main concern was I know most videos and the threads on here recommend...

    Ebihara Board Technique and Drainage

    When placing a tree on a wooden board in order to train the roots "Ebihara style", has anyone had issues with water not draining well because the board has no holes in it? The water has to drain off the sides and I wonder if that has caused any issues for anyone

    Rookies sorting out roots Ebihara don’t look!

    Air layer & planting on a board?

    Can an air layer be separated and planted directly on a board, or should the layer be planted normally for a season and then repotted on a board the following season?

    Round 2 of the Ebihara Method

    Last season I took a whack at the Ebihara method and, well that tree is dead now. I figured since it’s a new season, why not try again and hopefully not kill this one. So here’s my 2nd attempt at the Ebihara method:

    I'll not grow bonsai anymore.

    After reading all the 25 pages of the thead Ebihara Maples by @markyscott I came to some conclusions: 1-) I know nothing about bonsai. 2-) When I get to the level of knowledge you guys have, I"ll be dead and buried. Even being a fast learner. 3-) This forum and its posters are an immense source...

    Growing over tiles

    Not much to show here yet, just getting started on projects that will hopefully provide valuable material to work with later. My parents are allowing my to re-purpose the family garden into my bonsai tree farm. I will be starting quite a few trees and growing many of them over tiles to encourage...

    Chuhin Broom Elm

    With spring growth in full swing in Houston, I'm in the busiest time of the year. Trees in development are fertilized heavily - solid fertilizer on top and liquid fertilizer every weekend. Trees are pushing huge growth - it seems like they change every time I look away for a minute. That...
