blvd cypress. 2 years in the making....
« on: September 02, 2013, 11:38 AM »
So this was my very first bonsai that I bought. At the time I got it I didn't know ANYTHING about bonsai. Not how to trim it or repot it. So I thought I murdered the tree. But it survived and is doing well. Here are pics of what it looked like when I bought it and when I first trimmed it lol and pic of what it looks like. Boon helped me style it. I'm gonna repot it this fall.

I'm just going to let it grow and then do some more styling later. We just wired a couple of branches

It doesn't look like Bald Cypress to me.

That's what I get for skimming.  Apologies.  Still though, doesn't look like a Bald Cypress to me!  ;D
