Hi all

I recently was contacted on a fish keeping forum by a member who is emigrating.
He obviously knew I had a love of bonsai and asked if I wanted his tree as he couldn’t take it with him, yes please!!
So two weeks ago he dropped it off to me.
It needs work and a repot but has good potential and a nice sized trunk.
I was also very pleased to find out that it is a Deshojo
I believe it had sat in to much sun so I removed the damage leafs and topped up the pot with akadama
So happy with it and looking forward to working on it

Make sure to follow up with some neked pics this fall... that trunk deserves to have some decent branching ;) .
The branch structure is non existent me thinks, so I think it’s going to be a case of starting from scratch.
That is great I think as I can grow the tree I want.
Once winter is here I’ll update and put up a picture and what I intend to do and I would like opinions before I remove anything as I want what is best for the tree.

Sad that this person has to part with such a nice tree, but cheers for taking it in!
