I have had this Black Pine for about 6 years. It has been transformed from a trunk with clunky branches to a Shohin Bonsai. It is about 8" tall, the Nebari are over 6", it is potted in a Maru-hei pot that I picked up in the Green Club in 2006, The tree has been shown in the BIB show, winning members choice Shohin Bonsai Award, it was also shown this year at the National Bonsai Exposition in Rochester. Looks bigger that 8" doesn't it?
