General Bonsai Discussion / Re: Aspen

It's tough to say, the Aspen is a Populus like Poplar, and Cottonwood. Some of them require very different care, do you know the type? or the Latin name? I would put it in good soil with some of the original native soil mixed in, water it, maybe a light fertilizer in the summer and let it grow out for the year. That will give you time to gather info on it's needs and figure out how your going to create your masterpiece!

It seems as though a lot of the active members have left the group. I guess it's up to us new members to bring it back to life!
General Bonsai Discussion / Hi Everyone, New to the forums.

Hi everyone, my name is Will and I am new to this forum. There seems to be loads of information here! it's a shame it isn't very active anymore, maybe some of us new peeps can change that? Although I am not new to bonsai, it has been about 20 years since I have been active in it. I have decided with more time on my hands now, to continue on with my passions in life, bonsai being one of them. I have always found it difficult to get supplies in my town, though now it seems impossible, it's odd too, there seems to be a rise in bonsai interest in recent years ,and possibly more with the rise in apartment/small home dwelling. My neighbor owns a rose nursery, and she tells me someone asks her for bonsai stuff or pots on a daily basis, so I have decided to open a weekend store for bonsai supplies, including pre-bonsai stock. I figure it's worth a shot, and it gives me a reason to put my wholesale license to good use fueling my bonsai hobby.

 Oh FYI the name is pronounced Moto-L?-Jah it's my old motorcycle video production company name, now I just use it as an online name.

hi... I've been trying to investigate aqua bonsai, which the only info I can find is at bonsai empire,  that has an article and link to a company in japan that apparently made them a few years ago, but now doesn't seem to still exist.  anyone know anything about how they are made,  keep the roots from rotting or anything else?

Nobody has really posted in years what happened ?
These pics are rough I'll definitely learn how  to take good pics for you guys here the link if you want to see the video of it .
Leo, better late than never. I hope you see this bud. You always have been awesome. I have some screen shots of one of the LongLeaf Pine "Pinus Palustris" I think the only style to suit it is the Weeping Style so I'm going with it . I have my first branches going I'm pretty stoked. I've just let go band topped it last year. I want to try a akadama and pine bark mix because they love Acidic Soil.

I think my videos are getting better . I'm limited because of my equipment. I'll get some in the future. But meantime I'm learning how to edit and getting a feel for it. My first video was full of ums and so's . But it's real and it's me. It shows a few of my pets. The audio is really low cause I'm recording on my cellphone . So I started making Timelapsed videos since then.  I direct the viewers to other YouTubers that have different strong points in bonsai. They may not be good in one thing but there good in the other . So I try to learn a little from everyone. And respect everyone and their taste . And I direct them here to where it all started for me . My love for bonsai grew from here in this forum and Ausbonsai. I invite you all to see my videos . Let me know in the comment section of the video if you are a forum member . It would be really cool to see you guys there in the comments since I don't get any comments 😂 Here's a link to the video of this tree . And check out my first video so you can see the progression of my videos. Thank you guys
