This is a small shimp that Will ( the Grouper ) got for me at Bonsai Northwest when I was really down about bonsai. It was 2006 believe and he was kind enough to pick it out and ship it too me. I still think I owe him more money.
Yah... that grouper52 is a peach... plus it's all good karma for him...
Which angle of the tree in the last pair is the one you are going to plant it at??
Ok... so now I want to come swimming in your pool....lol
Ok... back to the tree.... it's coming along nicely. Have you toyed with putting more movement into that right side subtrunk/branch? Maybe guying it down a bit...?
Hello Dwight.. You are right.. it is starting to look like a bonsai and coming along nicely. I agree with Victrinia about guy wiring that branch on the right. Seems like you did a great job guy wiring the other 2 branches...Maybe have the super glue on stand by just in case...
Also, that banch is rather thick as far as proportions go..Since the tree is almost like a split trunk or sling shot sort of variation, that branch is going to get even thicker since most of the energy is going into 2 main leaders. You probably want to decide relatively soon what or if you are going to do with it. To keep it from getting a lot thicker, you may want to make sure that you prune more on that branch or you could jin a prtion of the branch.. However, that is risky and you would have to make sure that the whole branch is alive before you reduced it.
It is coming along nicely...
