Hello Bonsai Nuts,

I wanted to take a moment to introduce the new course that my teacher Michael Hagedorn launched recently with Bonsai Empire! The Bonsai Fundamentals Course covers 3 topics of bonsai that are not often talked about, Plant Physiology, Japanese Aesthetics, and Bonsai Design. The course was filmed entirely at Shinji Suzuki's garden in Japan, and contains about 2 hours worth of breathtaking imagery.

The course is priced at $39.99 and is a one-time fee. There are no membership fees, and for that one-time price you get lifelong access to the carefully thought out and edited content in the course. If you're interested in checking it out, you can preview a free lecture at http://www.bonsaiempire.com/courses/fundamentals-course

Also, here is a trailer for the course:


Cheers,
Andrew

Thanks Andrew. I'm about halfway through the material and I've definitely learned some new things and heard others presented in a way that bought some clarity to some concepts that were a bit fuzzy for me. Michael strikes me as a patient and thorough teacher. It'll be interesting to see how he brings together the seemingly disparate topics of plant physiology and bonsai aesthetics. I'm really enjoying it so far, especially filmed as it is against the backdrop of Shinji's garden.

I see in one of the photos that you're on your account for the site to view the course. How is it that you get to it? I made an account and bought the course today and wasn't sure if it'd be an email link I get or if it's part of the site and accessed by logging in. It appears from your post to be the later. I can't find it though.

I signed up a few weeks ago at the $20 dollar rate, never got an email, or anything, sent a follow up email and nothing. Not sure if they are slammed with requests, but it's a bit disappointing.

I received an email with the discount code last Saturday. If you haven't, send an email to Oscar. He'll get it fixed. He's been very responsive with me in the past.

I have already, about 4-5 days ago, I'm sure they are flooded with emails. I'll try again, can't hurt. Thanks!

I highly recommend this course!! Just finished watching the last lesson last night. Very informative on plant physiology taylored specifically for bonsai practice. This course answers almost every question a begginner might have. I really wish there was something like this when I first started bonsai. Probably wouldn't have killed as many trees as I did. It is absolutely worth $40 for how much information you get unlimited access to.

So before sending off another email to Oscar, I thought I'd check my junk mail folder, sure enough there was the original email and Oscar's response. Don't I feel like a heel. Thanks Scott, your post set me straight,

Sorry, not for me. It showed up right away.
I found an email address to send any questions about it to for an "instant reply" so I'll see what they say. Maybe something went wrong with the purchase, it's not often I use PayPal and wouldn't be the first time a payment didn't go through because of that. Thanks for the replies.

Good to hear! I hope it works for me soon then.

Too bad I didn't see it for the $20 rate. Can't shell $40 for an online course but maybe later. Looks pretty interesting, watched the free video too.

Ok, problem resolved! Oscar replied to my email and said the system was overloaded with people buying the course. So good for them that it's so popular. Then he also said that my payment through PayPal needed to for some reason be manually approved on his end. He said it as though it was abnormal so maybe there's an account setting I need to change so that doesn't happen. Thanks @markyscott for trying to help.
