Remember my earlier post from 2018 where I with a saw separated one Sabina Juniper Yamadori into two Sabina’s?! I bought it a year earlier in 2017 at my long-time Bonsai friend Teunis – Jan Klein his amazing Bonsai Center “Deshima” (NL). In April 2018 I believed that it was strong enough to be sawed in half! By doing so I created two new beautiful trees! Below: Just before the separation.
Below: Successfully separated to become two Bonsai in the future!
Below: Fast forward to the middle of September 2020. The two new pre-Bonsai have been heavily fed the whole growing season and both look very ready to be styled for the first time!
Below: The second one always reminded me of an old cascading Literati Juniper that I found very inspiring in my early Bonsai years. But for that sort of image, I have to tilt it heavily next repotting to create the cascading movement! But that is for the near future!
Below: It will be styled tilted something like this with a sharp inclination like a ski jumping ramp, with smaller and thinner foliage peds on the lower part of the image creating a lot of visual speed down to the left! I am very excited about this second one and am looking forward to starting styling them both further!
I hope you like my ideas for these two Sabinas?!
Cheers, and stay safe everybody!
