    Hello everyone. This is my first post. My wife bought me a Procumbens Nana for an early Father's Day gift. I am new to Bonsai and started in May of this year. I have joined a local club and I am attending classes so I can learn as much as I can. One of my first learnings was not to pinch new buds on Procumbens. You can see from the first picture to the present that I got a little crazy pinching it back. Now I will have to wait for new buds to come back. I didn't realize the energy is stored in the tips. So far I removed the decorative rocks to expose the nebari, cleaned out the old needles, made Jin on a weak back branch and eye poker and created Shari on the front. I plan to wire another eye poker to the side and let back buds in the crotches grow. I am learning that I need to slow down and not fuss with my trees so much. Hard lesson for sure. Any advice or recommendations are welcome. Thanks!

    Regards,
    Mel

    Yes, the first lesson bonsai reaches you is patience.
