The Development of a Cascade......
Tonights Thumbnail is the natural dripping of a branch from my rooted cutting. I have been told that one can force a cascade development (with wiring) but the plant does better if it naturally goes that way.
A Cascade is a branch the sweeps down below the root ball. In this case, the roots are in the bottom of the tiny pot. The branch just grew that way. I did nothing to encourage it.
The plant is a Barbados Cherry. The apex of the bonsai, eventually, will be the crown on top. The branch sweeping down outside of the pot has a lot of growing and thickening. I can see, in my minds eye, what this tree will eventually grow into. I will have to sketch it and compare, over time, if it grows to what I think it can.
