This redwood was bought in July of 09 from Mendocino Coast Bonsai. The first picture was August 09, the second February 2010, and the last is from this month. It has been a very fast progression so far, and I am actually finding it hard to keep up with. The branches are starting to thicken and really take shape, and the needles are starting to turn a dark green and harden. I potted it in a Jim Gremel Namban which I think is appropriate, but not entirely sure. It is still pretty scraggly, but hopefully it will fill out and look nicer next year. Enjoy!
