Many have seen this demo on youtube. Some were disappointed. They could not understand why I had ended up with such an ugly tree. Well, this is very often what one has to do in bonsai to get a very good looking tree in the end. It was the purpose of the demonstration to show this.
Here the recent development. This will give you some hope. But there are still about 5 to 10 years to go.
