New Olive Bonsai

thamsJanuary 13, 2013

Hi All,

Just wanted to share a photo of my new Dwarf Olive Bonsai. It stands at 5" in height.

I'm shooting for it to become a nice large sumo olive like I saw at Meehan's (second picture). I'll repot into a larger pot this summer to start the growth process. Maybe in 30 or 40 years it'll reach the large sumo size!

Very nice but I don't think you have to wait 30 years. You will be able to work on in in about 4 to 5 years.

Really? I've heard dwarf olives are sooooo slow to grow into a tree of decent size. I suppose it depends upon the conditions though. I'd like to think I have a pretty decent setup, but we'll see in a few years.
