Guess it is time for me to add to the posts. I have been reading entries for a while.
Enclosed are pics of a Fukien Tea that I started from a cutting in 1999. It is 5 inches tall and
has a trunk of 1 1/2". Enclosed is a pic from 2006 while I was still working on trunk development, then 2009 and two from this year. Last year, I wired the # 2 branch a little down but need to wire again because it has crept back up. I dislike Fukien Teas because wounds don't heal well. I would appreciated any comments about training possibilities. I have even considered lowering trunk and starting over with it. The tree didn't turn out the way I expected. My fault ...not the tree's fault.

I have a wide variety of mame bonsai. My favorites are my citrus and cherry mames. I live in zone
10. Any suggestions appreciated.

Thanks,
Ken
