I posted this earlier but don't see the posting anywhere.

Here is a pic of a Shohin Fukien Tea about 5 1/2" tall.

The octagonal pot is in a 3 1/2" by 2". It is over potted and the roots are buried. I over potted it to get some more branching and the the tree complied. I have about 100 potted plants. I am limited by the amount of space so that is why I grow the shohin size.

Great little FT, I have it's big brother. I can't keep smaller ones and favor larger Bonsai anyway, I'm away too often and have to depend on friends to water my trees.

This is a little Water Jasmine I've been messing with for about 3 years, 5" pot, tree is about 7" tall. I like the tangled mass of root. Blooms with a compound purple flower.

Ha ha...save your hate, I'll post a pic of it in bloom ;)) in the future then you can really hate me!!!

The tree gets loaned for parties and dinners to other expats here in town, the women just adore it to death. Cute little living centerpiece. Some have just begged for me give/sell it to them.
