I bought this honeysuckle last September. I cut it back pretty hard then and have just done small trimming since. It is very healthy. I am not sure how long it has been in the container but I want to start training the roots a bit. Being relatively new at bonsai I am not as agressive as many with the root work. Feel free to comment and jump in if you see some glaring missteps! First I mixed my soil components together. About 5 gallons worth. I used (top left) pumice, akadama, scoria, NAPA 8822, and a bit of Fox Farms organic. High heat in AZ calls for some organics.
