Ken, you have inspired me. I moved to South Carolina about five years ago and all this warm humid air must be good for something! I have always admired thoe big beautiful evergreens like fir and larch with it's fall colors but no chance for them here. Bald Cypress, I can see from yours, can be big and impressive. And what better place than the lowcountry of South Carolina. Thank you so much for unabashedly sharing your many years of experiance! Now I feel confident to tackle a new species and if i need more info I can look back at all that you have posted...invaluable. Thanks from a new fan...Don.

Don B,
Thank You very much.

Don M,
Thank You for Your kind words.
The Low Country of South Carolina is a great place to grow Bald Cypress Bonsai. I hope you have a try at them if You have not already. They are easy to grow just do not let them dry out and spray for scale and drench the soil for root aphids

You can get some very large Chinese Zisha pots from 789kentbonsaistore on eBay, I got a 32" oval for a BC forest planting for 200$.  I'll admit that they're not as nice as handmade Langs or Raynors or the like, but they're attractive and inexpensive, I find them worthwhile for larger pots.
