Inspiring for me who hasn’t built or kept alive a forest yet, or a tree in a bonsai pot YET.
Thank you for the updates.

If I inspire you in any fashion, that's friggen' awesome!!!:cool::cool::cool::cool::cool: Thanks, mate!!

.....can't take credit for the "build", but it's been, what(?), 5-6 years that I've been schlepping over it!! :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

not a lot of "progress" I suppose, but it's still here!!!!o_O:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Like the two-tone effect. Had to keep in more shade than I like, but wanted to take a shot at some foliage. Still dried out some. Re-pot this spring so was pretty much left to go "bush"...

Akadama pumice and lava with a heavy emphasis on the Akadama…..I might go back to a more "organic' mix to help with water retention.



....gotta' rake and spin it around as it has two good looks.....:D 🤢 😄 😄 😄 😄

….yea, some day it will look ok....learning how "bonsai" works and figuring out how to be a parent is a lousy cocktail with little buzz but plenty of hangovers....:rolleyes:;)

and 'cuz I like to leave a little something, since you popped in...….
