Then you should start from the beginning !
From these seedlings of a Japanese black pine, one can manage to get a decent exposed roots shohin (a cascade in this case) in 7 or 8 years. Plenty of fun!

Wow that is impressive. My seeds have much to live up to now. How did you manage to get that root exposure?

I think I may have found a use for the currently abandoned tall pot in my mum's yard.

UPDATE on this JBP neagari:
It's doing very well and healthy.
Strong and ready for some styling next spring! :-)


The whole tree.


The exposed roots.

In fact they go dormant here in Sao Paulo.
They stop growing, water intake is reduced to a bare minimum, and in the spring the buds start to swell (time to repot! Yes!)
But I agree, having a very long growing season helps a lot!

That looks amazing! When planting your seeds did you use just normal soil or a special kind?

For pine seeds I use "normal" bonsai mix plus coarse sand to help root development.
It works for me!
