Question,, how do you feel about starting a new or perspective cascade Bonsai in a PVC pipe? If you can stabilize the training pot (PVC) and give it the drainage it needs, than later when the tree has become accustomed to growing in that way, and then re-planting it into a Bonsai pot?

You could get a fat pvc with a flange on the base and plastic mesh attached at the proper level for drainage. I have seen chimney tile used as well. There are many materials to be used for 'training'. Some better than others.
