I love this stage of bonsai creation. Dirty hands, selecting a front, cutting the tree back hard. Techniques that seem to be suitable to only tropicals and some deciduous.

So it’s the fertilizer, water, and lots of sun game and I’ll have something by the end of summer. #mybonsaiworld #bonsai #trees #floridabonsai #americanbonsai #buildingatree (at Adam’s Art and Bonsai Studio and Nursery)
