Loving this Bare bougainvillea. I just acquired it from the spring Minnesota bonsai society auction. I know it was repotted this spring, and most of the flower just recently blew off. 🤣
I would love to hear any thoughts on its current state.
Thank you. ABDA6BC4-E093-4F02-9039-0412F4FF3D0C.jpeg5D7B00CB-1BEB-4A0D-91E2-04703B78C35B.jpeg

I like it. Put it out in the sun. In that small of a pot, I doubt you will be able to overwater it, which they hate. I'd be happy to have it.

Thank you. Right now it’s getting direct morning sun and afternoon shade.
This is my first, so I really appreciate the info!

Has some flaws I think I should address.
The new leader grew arrow straight. Don’t know what to do about it. 17F381F8-C731-4563-A3C9-7C38D5ADD975.jpeg8145F37F-C39B-4809-9A29-EEB22A9A4F5B.jpeg

And finally the bulging happening at the top with these two sprouts. F5D8E4F9-877E-4148-B477-BA8B572281B8.jpeg
Reckin’ I pluck one off and call it a day.
Please, any suggestions are very welcome and appreciated!
