Your creations have such a unique look. They tell stories. I love this. Great idea. There is so much scope for the imagination in bonsai.

Berberis penjing 1 year 1 week ago #35059

I sold this penjing this spring with clear statements that this is an exterior tree, both in an advert and then in emails with the person who bought it.
I gave him clear instructions as to feeding and watering.
Now he got back to me after few months with the pics and a question if the tree is OK.
Pics:


He admitted he never fed it and kept it indoors in his office.
But blamed me because he supposedly wrote to me that he wanted it for his office.
That is a lie as I have full email conversation saved and I explained to him in two earlier messages that I only recommend ficuses for indoor environment and everything else will sooner or later die indoors.
Some people really suck.....

PS: I made another penjing with berberises few days later as this one, I still have it although it is up for sale and it is just thriving.
I need cash badly to be able to cover all my bills so I need to sell something from time to time and that helps me a lot - but if it is gonna continue like this and buyers ´will just kill the trees - I will rather keep them for myself cause it makes me sad to see my work ending up like that.
Hopefully this scenario won´t repeat irself.

Kristof - That just plain sucks. I understand how crushing it can be to learn that something you spent a great deal of time and emotional energy on has gone to complete crap, especially in a short time frame. My condolences. The buyer's accusing you of being at fault are just insult to injury at this point and I am sorry you are dealing with that. I hope you are doing what you can to end that interaction as quickly and gracefully as possible.
