I think it's probably do to the trees not waking up yet. At least mine, are still getting into their spring mode.I have noticed that there are not many trees being posted in general. A month or 2 ago, there were a bunch of threads more about the principles, philosophies and opinions of bonsai. I thought once April hit, that there would be more actual trees being posted. Could be people are busy repotting and styling etc. It could also be that people don't want to have their work scrutinized.
There is another bonsai site I sometimes go to that seems to have had a large drop off in participation. Almost like a standstill at this point.
I would also like to see more trees being posted. I do think it is best if the trees were posted in the specific sections for their species. This way each tree can get the attention it deserves.
All are wonderful!!! That Chinese Elm is a killer!OK Dario,
Here are a few work in progress trees. I'm a poor photographer. I have posted a few of these before I think. San Jose in training, Chinese Elm, Bougie and another San Jose. The Bougie is a bit of a pom pom but my wife wanted to see it like this.
Assuming you mean the san jose, the one on the end of your pics of trees, could be a bit tough to get a good match. Round could work. I also searched for a rectangular, soft edge, somewhat deep, moderate tan pot. Couldn't find one to do a virt though. Of course, the best way is to have the tree and the new pot right in front to get an idea.Thanks Rob,
The boxwood and the two San Jose Junipers were planted about 20 years ago. I dug 4 out this last fall, one of them was the first juniper in the plastic pot. The other San Jose has been out of the ground for a few years and gone through some changes. I have been trying to decide on a new pot for it. Maybe round. What do you think?
These beautiful pines really should have their own thread in the pines section. I feel that they might get lost in the shuffle here and would get the attention they deserve in the pines section.Here are a couple of black pines I've been working on - a nishiki and a yatsubusa. The yatsubusa had a grafted branch with regular sized needles, so I've been replacing the foliage on that branch with dwarf shoots pruned from elsewhere on the tree.
