Ulmus Penjing number 2 - work in progress 2 years 1 month ago #20227

Thanx Auk.
Yep, it depends who´s buying :)
For example I paid 28 euros 2 years back for a small chinese elm in a blue pot with badly glued rock and a little bird figurine :lol:
If I saw a bonsai landscape like this then I wouldn´t hesitate to buy it for this price If I had some extra cash.
Nobody sells penjings around here.
So it is quite unique piece of material.

And if I compare the price I would like to get for this penjing to some "landscape" they sell here in one of the biggest bonsai centres...
Like this ficus for 165 euro .... well

Oh my... that makes your 150 euro look cheap.
Guess I should have included 'what's your market' :)

Hey lads the sale is off for now.
I wanted to prune the trees just a little bit and remove only branches that were totally off - it turned out most of theme were and at the end I was left with nearly bare trunks :woohoo:
It is gonna tale a while to form new crowns and I am not sure I will be willing to let go of it then. So my problem is solved.
I cannot be trusted with the scissors :cheer:
