Favorite Ficus Bonsai So Far – 24 Year Tiger Bark Ficus

Favorite Ficus Bonsai

To this point.   –

A favorite bonsai of mine. surprised it took as long as it did to sell.  I had developed that tree to the point that I am thinking about keeping it for a few years.

The tree last December.

I made a vow that I would never get attached to a bonsai tree. None if these bonsai are “mine”.  Meaning I try and keep a Zen state of mind regarding Bonsai. Let the water flow through the hose. If I try to grab on to it or look at it like it is mine i clog the flow. Everything is to be shared. Still some I hold on to for years. I work them to a certain point then let so e one else enjoy it. I believe this mentality to be crucial.  Also allows me to see better art every year. In this case, I am getting this tree so far I want to bring it to another level.

This Bonsai progressed quite a bit but has found it’s new home and I hope that the new owner takes this tree to the potential it can eventually reach.  These are the most resent pictures I have below taken on  7/11/17.
