Another trip to the plant stalls 25 June,

we have been to a few more plant stalls over the past few weeks taking pictures of bonsai as we go, I hope you enjoy them, so here goes,

this one in flower, notice the coconut soil, I am now thinking that out here it is more important to keep the soil damp as it is so warm out here,
[img]https://i1105.photobucket.com/albums/h357/stanleyfk/P1010562.jpg[/img]
it was one of this collection,

this one growing over a rock,

I am not sure what this ground cover plant was,
[img]https://i1105.photobucket.com/albums/h357/stanleyfk/P1010559.jpg[/img]
I am not sure if this is a bonsai or a cut off tree,

new for me the plants, Juniper I think, have two colour foliage, green and a creamy white,

I am again not sure what this plant is,
[img]https://i1105.photobucket.com/albums/h357/stanleyfk/P1010542.jpg[/img]
I did like this bonsai over rock,

but for me I really liked the moss as a cover plant,

there were two nice ones here,

at another plant market I noticed these examples, tree roots making the pot,
[img]https://i1105.photobucket.com/albums/h357/stanleyfk/P1010061.jpg[/img]
with a nice little fern growing through the moss,
[img]https://i1105.photobucket.com/albums/h357/stanleyfk/P1010060.jpg[/img]
I did not ask the price, the problem out here is that when you do the owner thinks it is going to be a sale,

this one is at the same place I bought our bonsai from 1,300 baht ($42.35, £26.54), I hope everyone likes the pictures, as usual we will keep looking for more examples, the good news is that we have to go to Bangkok in about 6 weeks time, so I will take more pictures of bonsai then, sfk.

Your mystery ground cover is Selaginella. The ROR Ficus looks like burtt-davyii and the red tipped tree looks like Eugenia myrtifolia. The "trunk chop" is both, a "used to be a tree" and "developing bonsai". Trunk chopping is a method used to get super-fat trunks with lots of taper.

I think you're getting us used to being envious :p or maybe I'm just not in the 'let's go buy an airline ticket'-mood today...

Thanks for sharing :)

Oh, I wouldn't say that, well... maybe a little. But those two RORs are amazing, and I really like the potential of the first, a Malpighia.

I liked the natural wood/root containers. Very cool looking. I don't do bonsai, but have broms in an old cedar burl, and have used driftwood.

Love the photos!
