Since winter is soon here, I guess I should be happy with the trees I have, and the new additions that are coming likely on thursday, it's just I likely wouldn't have any to enter into a show and win a prize in the spring... Last 3 pictures are of the Brazilian Rain Tree I got from Wigert's Bonsai and likely to arrive Thursday, won another maple on 99 cent bonsai group that also should arrive wednesday or thursday, don't have pictures of it yet.

Dont put too much focus on shows and prizes. Most bonsai artists dont have prize winning trees their first 10 years in the hobby. Just focus on development step by step. In the future you might or not have a prize winning tree.

From the pictures, it appears you need stands or benches to increase the space to keep them. Of course, that means you want plenty of space for each tree.

Then you may find you can squeeze them together to have places for more trees, and then you may need to make more stands.

You might start planning now to buy the neighbor's house next door to have space for your bonsais.
