Really nice root over rock shohin with an over all great structure.21544FB6-590D-4B56-BF62-FFDCA8B78039.jpeg

Problem is lots of bar branching and 4+ branches coming from one spot!

Definitely going to have to make some decisions!

I feel both sides of this minajatwa are significant. If anything I feel the tree is sort of cascading with a left slant coming off the rock. So maybe that will dictate the direction I go. Any advise is mire than welcome!!!

Just curious, what local nursery did you go to?

It’s called Cass bonsai. Only one in the area and their closing shop. Lots of great deals!
I know, been there several times, great guys. Last time I was there, there wasn't a whole lot left. I actually looked at that jade that you bought, but got a Green Island ficus instead. Guess I'll check their website to see when they have open shop.

Still having issues. Wired up a couple branches but just not happy with it. Think I came up with a plan. Trying to show my idea in the photos to get a triangular shaped canopy in there.

So basically I would be taking off most of the uppper foilage and leaving a small triangle canopy down below. Any thoughts, likes, dislikes????

Thanks again
