Kohwhai - first attempt at Bonsai!

Kowhai - year 4

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.

Work on your harmony

Work on your harmony...the pots are too big for the plant...plant it in ground first ...when fat enough then you may place it here...or buy a smaller pot... consistency in size matters...that's tip from a master.

I cant stop imaginating this Kohwhai as a Flat Top tree.Just remove the top branch of the tree.Anyway that,s just my opinion..I,ve heard a Bonsai Sifu said...LESS IS MORE...Bonsai Forever.
