new mugo #42

is comes from the same source. It was collected in Switzerland in the 1990ies. Then it was styled but not to total satisfaction. So I got it today. I will clean it, uncover surface roots, burn the marks of man away from artificial deadwood, pluck old needles and then feed it heavily with chicken manure. In one year this will get final styling in one afternoon. It will require a new pot though eventually. Bonsai - the never ending game.
