Here we go -

[ 1 ] From seed 94 or 96 - Small leaf fukien tea - haven't figured out how to shoot this one. Supposedly a tree over water.

[ 2 ] Murraya p. about 16 years old - has an interesting history if anyone is interested.

[ 7 ] Sageretia t. from a cutting around 96. This is the one that grows a trunk but few branchlets. I have trimmed it lightly but the new growth has just started and I didn't want to damage the tree. Better seen in about 3 months.

[ 8 ] Gmelina p. from a cutting and about 31 or so years [ that's a 1" cutting.] Not mine, but my brother-in-laws, however since I water it and prune it when he is not home, he suggested that I show it.

This is an example of a Bonsai that was first drawn and then grown, pruned to approximate the drawing.
Happy to show the drawing if anyone asks.

An image of my house. Since it is surrounded by trees, this is all you can see of it. Shot from next door.
Thanks for watching.
Please feel free to say whatever you wish.
Good Evening.

Very nice trees, Anthony!

If I might make a suggestion... most of the trees appear to be potted too high.  I think they would look better if they were settled a little more "in the pot".  Doing so would allow you to use less moss to hold the soil in place, thus exposing the nebari more.

Very nice.  I especially like the Clerodendron.  Always nice to see what is going on around the world.

Very nice,
I too like the Clerodendron, I did not know that the leaves of Clerodendron would reduce enough to be attractive as bonsai. Looks like it could be very good as tropical bonsai. Nice

Gmelina - Looks like another tropical worth doing as bonsai. I wasn't familiar with this group either, after looking at images on Wikipedia, you have gotten nice leaf reduction. It appears they have really interesting flowers. Do you ever get flowers?

Thanks guys.

John, there are no pines growing down here that could hold a candle to what you guys are doing.

Leo, the flowers of the gemelina, are grown on very long shoots and to me are only so so.

Owen, to see what a Clerodendron can do see the Taiwan bonsai site, this airlayer is just abiut 5 years old and I am having a bug problem with this plant. A little guy that likes to sit and munch. I haven't found a way to control them as of yet.
Special thanks for looking. I may put up a few more, just for you to see.

Adair,
I will have to try harder. Thanks for taking the time to look an comment.

Thuan,

thank you very much for looking.
Good Afternoon
Anthony
