Kohwhai - first attempt at Bonsai!

Kowhai - year 4
I grew this tree from seed and started shaping it after the first year. During Winter 2007 I root pruned and repotted it. I have begun developing exposed roots to add some character. My intention from here is to further develop it while keeping it this size. I have also started another kowhai which will be a flattened, wind-swept shape perched on top of a rock formation.
