They look fantastic Eric!!

So mame isn't a tree species, it's a style of bonsai - trying to get the tree as small as possible? Is that right?

Exactly Leah, all different height bonsai have different japanese descriptions ie :
MAME bonsai less than 7cm in height
SHOHIN bonsai upto 20cm in height
KIFU bonsai between 20 and 40cm in height
CHU bonsai between 40 and 60 cm in height
DAI bonsai over 60cm in height

I really only recognise 4 sizes, tiny,small, medium and gee thats a monster :lol:

Eric, apologies are not needed - post as much as you like - nobody's going to jump on you no matter how much you post, and for me personally, it's great to see what others are doing and the help and advice is always very useful.
