I will take some soon. when the weather clears up. there all outdoors so go through the the seasons like normal. i have just repoted and they have been through a good pre spring hacking roots as well. 1 is a 38 year old boganvilla tree which i have just prepared for flowering so no greenery on it but when it flowers its unbelievable. I've had it 14 years. but I will post pics for sure when in full flower and iwagumi has grown in. a pre season teaser.

so i will do a picture now and update in 3 months.

Looks good, I've often though of doing the same but using garden moss.
give it a go. mosses are the best to use in general and normally i would only use moss in the past on bigger projects.

Like the Fukinagashi Style bonsai, and the land Iwagumi looks great next to it.

I've got a few Bonsai in training myself, there currently planted in the ground growing on and hope to have them transplanted into training pots in a few years.

thankyou for the kind words.it does take a while but once it starts to develop after being in its new pot the fruits of your labour shine through.
Good luck

The tree is still in progress.
The front sections main branch had some die back so it needs to fill in again.

Hi all,
I have no clue what's in the land iwagumi.
The plant with the red flower is Anagallis (Lysimachia) arvensis.

The yellow flowered Sedum may be Sedum (rupestre) reflexum, but there are other similar yellow flowered, spiky leaved Sedum spp.

Hi all,

They are both plants that occur in the UK as well as Spain. Anagallis arvensis ("Scarlet Pimpernel") is a common native, and S. rupestre (Rock Stone-crop) a long established "alien" plant on dry-stone walls etc.

We have a native Stone-crop that looks similar (S. forsterianum), but that is a much <"rarer plant"> in the UK.
