Was out working in the greenhouse this morning getting some trees dressed up for the dance in Nasville next month at the Regional Show. I've debated on wether I should show this bald cypress but now that it's been spruced up a bit It just might be a candidate. What do you think? I've included the before and after shots just to show those new to the hobby what a little "bonsai soap and water" behind the ears can do for that little wild pig pen of a tree in your collection.
If there are any potters out there lurking, I'm looking for a nice container about the same size but a bit deeper for this tree that doesn't have any drainage holes in it. I grow this bugger in good ole Kentucky clay and have the current drainage holes plugged so it can be filed with water. The tree is a Northern collected tree from the most northern limits of bald cypress in Southern IL.
