Bonsai is time-consuming, and some things come easier than others. Building up the apex and canopy is not done overnight. It takes years to patiently clip and grow a fine branch structure. Filling out empty spaces, strengthen up areas, and adjust space to achieve a natural appearance.
I received a question about creating the apex on bonsai, and sometimes it is just easier to show it, than responding in writing. So today´s member´s video is on the topic, building up the apex and canopy of a bonsai from scratch and how to shape it so it looks like an old tree.
You find the video at Almost Friday. Which are our almost weekly episodes posted mainly during the growing season as extras to the main content.
