Walter Pall's main blog about bonsai and his work with trees from day to day. Lots of good pictures of good trees and lots of valuable information about bonsai.
Dear Mr. Pall,I've seen the images of this tree's progession on your web site. I couldn't help noticing that it appears that you haven't used any cut paste to seal the wounds on the shari you've made in the trunk.If so, how did the calous developd so well? Have you used any other technique to do so, or is the use of the cut paste just another bonsai myth like others you're used to destroy?
Cut paste is a bnsasi myth. State of the art is that the tree knwos much better himself how to cope with this. As you can see from my example any usage of cut paste is superfluous.A tree is not a human being and functions etirely different. Cut paste comes from not understanding this difference.Walter
