Last summer I visited my girlfriend and her folks in Vietnam. There were bonsai at most of the tourist attractions we went to, and I thought I'd share a few pics of my favorites.
Think this is a Ficus Benjamina, which was far and away the most common species among the bonsai I saw. Amazing root-over-rock. There were tons of bonsai of this size or larger.
This is probably my favorite bonsai and my favorite angle. I went back to take another picture of it. Something about the proportions makes it really attractive.
same bonsai, different angle.
A lot of bonsai were in this style of plants on rocks in a pond. Certainly makes watering easier. Actually, watering bonsai in Vietnam seems to be easy in general. Half the year is the rainy season where it rains once a day every day. Its also easy to get aerial roots since many areas have high humidity. I actually saw Desert Roses that were hung from strings, with their roots dangling in the air, growing happily.
