Just bought this tree for 75 dollars. It is from 2006. I had to cut a lot of root and i also cut a lot of branches because the previous owner make very weird bonsais and lets branches get way too long. If this tree survives and comes alive in the spring then I will be able to post more of its progression here.

June 2020.


4 January 2020 1: I cut two branches off before I took any pictures.


4 January 2020 2: looking at the big huge root wad the nursery owner never felt the need to trim back


4 January 2020 3: cutting the biggest portions of the big root


4 January 2020 4: Looking at the roots I left it to come back


4 January 2020 4: Picture of the finished product in a wooden crate with compost top-soil, vermiculite, red lava rock.


I hope it comes out of dormancy in March...
