    Mame Juniperus Sargentii - how to tighten up

    Hey, so for a couple of years I’ve done little bits of work here and there on this juniper whip. Now, I wouldn’t class myself as a completely green beginner but I am about to ask a beginner question. How do I get this foliage to tighten up?? I get that it isn’t a shimpaku but sargentii is still...

    Citrus mame bonsai development thread.

    I decided to start my first bonsai development progress thread. It's going to be a mame probably. I got the seedling as a gift from my grandmother and decided to wire it up to see if it turned into something good. Here are some pictures from less than a week when I planted it in a plastic pot...

    I got this seedling as a gift from my grandmother and I wanted help identifying it because I want to create a thread to follow the evolution of this plant. I know it will take a while but I want to make a mame of this plant. I was told it was from Citrus reticulata but I wanted to certify it...

    Mame pots on a mini pottery wheel

    A couple months ago while looking for something on Amazon, I came across this mini pottery wheel. Despite the reviews of it being under powered I thought it could be usable to make mame pots. So yesterday I finally had some free time to really try it out. At the end of my testing of...

    Hi! I'm an 18 years old italian guy and I'm into bonsai since 2016. That's my first thread ever on this forum and I'm so excited. I want to show you a brief evolution of this mame juniper that was gifted to me from a friend in 2018. It was already a 3 years old cutting. Unfortunately I don't...

    My first Mame bonsai (Symphoricarpos sp.)

    I was training this little Symphoricarpos sp. root cutting to be a mame bonsai and was planning to pot it in this clay pot (recycled candle base). It was growing well but I noticed little white stuff on the leaves. I was wondering if someone can confirm its a fungus infection. Any input will...

    Small Nishikigawa

    I've started training this maple about 3 years ago. It was a grafted cultivar. First season I ground layered it. The second season of having it, I put it on a board. No nails to spread out roots, just screwed to a board and left to grow. Third season, I skipped work. Just too busy with things...
  13. I


    So I cheated, I didn’t make this, I bought it. Also, it came from zone 6 or 7, so it might even wake up in my brutal winter (it seriously is brutal, too hot to go without AC but not hot enough to justify turning it on). Anyways, I think I wanna raise it 2 or 3mm to expose some roots. It’s...

    Mame coral beauty Cotoneaster, 3 month progression

    Bought this great little cotoneaster coral beauty for $10 on June 4th. Loved its inherent trunk line and could see, based on the trunk line, that the base was plenty thick and leaves plenty small to make a convincing composition. Here it is after chopping , removing duff and loose soil and...

    Mame JBP - prune or wire?

    Well, I have this small JBP and the front branch (small, to the right, covering the trunk). What do you think? Should I get rid of it?

    My mame JBP and early very hot spring

    Got this little 18 years old (documented!) as a birthday gift in September. It was grown from seed by a local Japanese bonsai master; after he passed away, two other bonsaists took care of it. So I got it like you see in the picture, in need of shape and by the end of the Winter here. But...

    Lawnmower Mamed Cotoneaster

    I am hoping this tree is eligible for the mame contest. I was going to wait to start a thread for this tree but I cant figure out how to send pictures in conversations here, so this is my work around. The story behind it is my cousin ran over this (now) little guy with a sit down lawn mower...

    Acer P. Mame Broom?

    A local landscape nursery gave me a couple JM volunteers for free last spring. One has really nice, small, rigid leaves, so it's been growing out since then. I wanted to play with the other so I immediately chopped it to the first shoots and cut the downward roots and put it in a training pot...

    Mame Crabapple Project

    Over the summer I separated a couple crabapple air-layers and I'm starting to see a mame within one of them. When I separated it, I chopped it at almost the right spot, but now that I see a mame, I need to chop it slightly differently. My question is when, but any tips on making a clean chop...

    Tiny Elm

    I found this little guy at a local garden center. I was attracted to it because it had the thickest trunk and I saw an opportunity to chop it for taper. Since the chop, it's put out some strong growth, although not in the most desirable locations along the bends. Maybe spring will bring some new...
