This small but perfectly formed tree arrived to me from a friend who was having trouble keeping it healthy. After moving it from the small plastic container into a larger dark glazed dish replacing the compost it was living in into a special Bonsai mix acquired from Greenwood Bonsai Studio. The trunk seemed to be out of proportion to the rest of the tree but after a couple of months in the new container the change was quite remarkable.

The trunk had more than doubled its girth to over ½ ” (1cm) diameter. The new compost was double the amount of grit to ensure good drainage. The tree is small but Perfectly Formed and a great addition to my collection, if he lets me keep it!!
