A year after collecting I decided it is time to thin the foilage out so the sun could reach the more inner parts of the crown. After the procedure I must have removed a half of the green, but the spruce is still dense.
From the last report on this pine, the tree has changed dramaticly. In a good way. I have adjusted the angle of the tree and brought the lowest branch closer to the trunk. Next spring the pine goes in a better pot.
This photo below was taken March this year. The change is obvious.
Yesterday I styled a scots pine which branches were very very long and foilage only at the end of them. With extreme (and maby exagorated) twisting I managed to make a decent bonsai. For sale - cheap. Hight: 30 cm from pot rim. More info: nikart.rozman(a)gmail.com
