Hello to All Bonsai Lovers,
Here is the Bonsai Part of My Blog. And this is My First Report on Bonsai.
SO... Lets Begin... This is a Ficus Microcarpa. I was at the CFBC Summer Picnic and One of My Bonsai Friends Gave this tree to Me because it didn't sell. He was selling it for another one of My Bonsai Friends, he didn't wan't to bring it back to him and He Knew I would like it, SO I got the tree !!
Now Normally, I Don't Like to Put Trees in Bonsai Pots too Early, But this is what It Came in.
SO Here is the Tree. Lets Get to work !!
(Sorry I Don't Have Pictures Doing Each Step, Next Time)
1.) I Removed the Leaves to make them smaller (Defoliated)
2.) I Took Unnecessary Branches/Trunks Off.
3.) I Made Some of the Branches Shorter.
Now I Had an Idea to Kind of Make this Forrest, Windswept. So I Cut the Branches Accordingly.
Here is the Finished Product...
And Here is What I Have in Mind for What I Want it to look like after next styling...
Alright, That was Post Number One Under the Bonsai Section of www.JaminWithBen.weebly.com. I Hope You Enjoyed and Learned about how the tree was styled and some of the techniques to Bonsai. See You Next Post...
