I won’t guess the species this time (crabapple?), I’m that not good at it anyway (if you don’t believe me, check out the last post). What I will guess is that these are fairly normal human fingers, which means this is a very small bonsai. This and the other two photos in this post are from Eric Sin’s facebook page.
The biggest challenge with the smallest trees
Mini bonsai provide challenges that you don’t find with larger trees. Basically, it’s about showing something that’s compelling with a very limited number of branches to work with (you can almost always forget secondary, let alone tertiary branches). There are other challenges too, such as working in such a small format, and keeping something alive in such a small pot, but I think that such severely limited branching is the biggest challenge.
