A case study of a Juniper being trained into a Literati Bonsai. The tree was bought as nursery stock and was styled in one session.
Picture 1: The nursery stock, a healthy tree planted in a large plastic pot.
Picture 2: The tree after being trained, it looks very natural. After its styling (mostly wiring and pruning) the tree was repotted into a smaller, round pot to accentuate the tree's length. Some branches have been Jinned to make the tree look older.
