Hello all!

So I was walking on out land the other day to make some azalea layerings, and I found some nice Guava trees, they grew on the organics up on a a slab, so it didn't rooted deep, making a nice radial nebari.

So yesterday I decided to go get them, even had heard they're hard trees to make bonsais...
I reduced their branches in the half, when I was removing the smaller one, I broke it's taproot, and the thin soil clod broke too, So I washed it's roots and pruned. The bigger one I was able to bring it with it's own soil clod, this one has a nice natural movement on the base of the trunk.

I planted them on the ground here by my house, I think I'll let it there for a year, to see how they behave and start to imagine designs for them...

Let me know your thoughts or even tips, if anyone tried guava trees here, etc...

(The smaller one yesterday)


(The smaller one today)


(The bigger one today, I tried to show it's trunk thickness and natural movement starting on the nebari)
