Today is April fools. I thought it will be a got Segway to this post. I have not seen very many arborvitae being used for bonsai and now I’m thinking, I maybe one of those fools. Oh well.
In the winter of 2014-2015, I collected this large Arborvitae landscape tree and posted it here Envisioning-the-Future. I left it on the ground all of last year just to see what it will do. It kept growing. This last winter, I repotted it in bonsai soil and reduced the roots even more. Now the large tree that used to be carried by 2 to 3 people can be carried by one person. This photo was taken about 1 month ago. It’s growing nicely now in it’s plastic pot. Lots of fertilizer this year. If it continues to be healthy, maybe this fall, I will do some carving and some wiring. Stay tuned.
