All India Bonsai Talent Show, Bangalore

Few members of Bodhi Bonsai attended the 'All India Bonsai Talent Show'   Sri Ganapathy Sachidananda Ashram(Mysore) at  Bangalore on May 9-10, 2015.

We could watch several experienced Bonsai Masters working on different plants suitable for Indian conditions, producing and shaping awesome Bonsai plants.

The Masters were giving tips on how to grow Bonsai of different styles, how to achieve good results, how to induce flowers, fruits etc.

The interactive sessions were very useful. We are all thankful to Jyothiji & Nikunj-ji for introducing this kind of event which is so beneficial to Bonsai Lovers all over India.

Suseela Vergis & Dr, Yogesh did a fantastic Penjing style  using coral reef rocks and miniature Premna. Doctor explained how and where to keep the figurines so that they merge with the surroundings. Suseela's talk on Bougainvillae was so informative.

The Talent show ended with a game where sets of 3 participants were selected to style a given plant. Each person has to continue work from where the previous person stopped, to get a remarkable style.
