Spending 2 days in last and this weekend, I did wiring to black pines which I didn’t do seedling cutting. Basic way is same as I did before.
These kids are the targets. Maybe 25-30? Looks like not easy.. they may bother each other. Same as before, cut all single and withered leaves off.
I did it! And it looks fine. Now, start wiring to each black pines. I used 1mm aluminum wire like before.
Wiring this one…
Like this. I didn’t have any exact image…
Other one became like this…
Or like this… This time I didn’t make them too small, but freely and easily. My image was to make them “Bunjin” or “Kengai” style.
Please refer below for Bonsai style;
However some become this small…
This one looks fine; will be “Bunjin” style?
This one also looks interesting. There’s a character at the top. Maybe also for Bunjin?
At upper part, curb is too loose… It may disappear as the trunk gets fat.
There’re some crack on surface… But it looks ok.
It took 2 days to finish wiring to everything.
Like this. Some of them might wither and die, but I’ll keep this for a while. It depends on how fast the trunk gets fatter, but maybe… I’ll remove the wires in the end of April or beginning of May.
It was so difficult and annoying… Too many pines in very small pot. Leaves are so long and I accidentally cut a lot of leaves as you see in the photo.
