Morning All, this is the Pyracantha to start its 'Bonsai Training'. This is pre-wiring, just in a pot, larger than normal but I still want some root growth, initial intention is to raise it out of the ground over time, and incorporate a rock. Any tips/advice appreciated @sinukarta 😀 #pyracantha #firethorn #bonsai-in-training #bonsai

Yes and yes. Add rock now,, lift now, then trim down your ends, of roots and tips. You can add more drainage too. Liquid feed until spring. Then ignore it...

I have Barbara, I used to have 40 or so, collected over several years, lost them all in one night thanks to a feral cat we'd taken in, never managed to save any...the cat annihilated them!! 🤬 Not that I wish the cat any ill will at all 😂 It was over 20yrs ago...ironically the cat it still alive, my friend took it off me, its 24yo now!! @jacaranda

I think after they grow normal, you need to think the basic movement and root training. Bonsai is art, so it's depends how the dance with you, and you must start from image that this tree is basically huge tree and has natural stories of the movement, example why to grow move to right, ah may be cause they grow at the cliff and etc. Good luck Jason. Note there is basic rules about bonsai, i will tell you later after you made some basic movement.. 😊👍

Loads of berries on the little bargain #pyracantha, its being turned into a #bonsai got it fixed in a pot, so Christmas morning will be spent wiring the branches into shape, and pruning, before I leave it to recover until about Autumn
