When it comes to working with bonsai trees, one of the things that I absolutely love is when I get an opportunity to take an old completed bonsai that was allowed to overgrow and bring it back two where it should be. This rustic Prostrata juniper (Juniperus Chinensis Prostrata) looks like a very old tree because it is. The actual age and history of the tree can be found in the thickness of the trunk as well as the branch development, which is clearly the focal point of the tree. As previously mentioned the canopy and foliage have been recently cleaned and re-wired. Because this tree is an old completed piece only the secondary and tertiary branches were wired as the primary branches are already set. What this means for its new owner is that this trees canopy will be a show ready very soon. The sinuous trunk is also very impressive due to the thickness and. Texture that is rarely found in a tree this small. Any consider the Prostrata juniper to be one of the easiest junipers to work with because of its resilient ability to handle many environments. Overall, the composition of this Juniper conveys a tree that has lived its entire life on an open windy prairie and it shows in its natural beauty. The pot that we chose to accompany this beautiful tree is equally pleasing. It is an old, round Japanese ceramic bonsai pot (12.5×5). The pot shows a beautiful accent design on the top portion. The smooth, rich, reddish-brown clay epitomizes the quality of Japanese Tokoname pots. Although most of the Japanese pottery bears an incision or mark made by the artist or craftsman, a few makers do not mark the item thereby making the pot itself their signature. Other than the old “JAPAN” sticker on the bottom of the pot, the piece itself is a “non-kamajirushi” which means non-marked. On a side note. Ive noticed that not too many sellers talk or write about things that should be done after you receive your tree so I will give you my two cents worth. When you receive your tree unpack it carefully. Cut the tape and plastic wrap from the pot and the branches if applicable. Secondly give the tree a good watering and then put the tree in a partially shaded spot for a few days to allow it to adjust. After several days of adjustment your new bonsai can be reintroduced to bright sun. Good luck and if you have any questions feel free to fire off a message.
