Yesterday we welcomed our newest bonsai to our collection, donated to the San Diego Bonsai Club last month. It is an astounding juniper forest of six trees, with the seventh one planned to be added next year during soil changing. The specimen is a foemina upright juniper, just like some of the other bonsai on display. The SDBC president created a new four legged wooden stand on which the bonsai rests. Its position by the bend of the walking path is meant to reveal itself unexpectedly and surprisingly to the guests walking along.
The kengai (cascading) style tree also has very moist moss wrapped around the branch in order to promote additional branch growth. JFG and SDBC are talking about creating QR bar codes linked to more plant information online, perhaps on the SDBC website. More news to come!
