MY UPSIDE DOWN BONSAI AND HOW TO MAKE A BONSAI POT

    

MY UPSIDE DOWN MANGROVE BONSAI

On 25 Nov 2009, I tried this new technique that I called it UPSIDE DOWN BONSAI!
This is my mangrove bonsai tree. I took the mangrove seedling from my backyard and planted it in the small pot about 6 months ago. Instead of plant it in an ordinary technique, I purposely hang it upside down. Surprisingly, the seedling survived even without sea water. So far the mangrove experiment is showing a good sign. I plan to commercialize it to bonsai lovers who leave far from the sea!

HOW TO MAKE A BONSAI POT

Since we plant many bonsai trees, we need lots of bonsai pots.
Making bonsai pot is not easy.
We must have a good technique in order to make a good bonsai pot.
Making bonsai pot is fun.
I bet you..Homeschooling is really interesting...!
Learning something that really put you in the real world.
How about selling them ONLINE! Good idea.




You have to shape your own desire size and design of bonsai pot with a mixture of sand and clay so that it can hold a shape. I just did it with my own hand. After that just put on it a mixture of cement with water. The layer must be about one inch thick so that the pot is not easily break. Add extra cement for the legs of the pot as you wish. On the left of the photo is the pot that I just put the cement on the shaped sand and on the right is the one that already ready to remove the sand. I made the pot two days ago. You should give the time for the cement to really harden before you start to remove the sand.

Well...Instead of buying those expensive pots of bonsai, we can just
make them by ourselves. You can paint the pot with 
your favourite colour or just leave it just that.



LEARNING TO MAKE BIG BONSAI TREE DURING JUNGLE TRACKING WITH MY FAMILY

This jungle tracking happened  in 2005. I was six years old and still small to be called a bonsai player. My dad exposed me to this world of bonsai at the early stage. At this early years I just input all the knowledge around me...and doing nothing. 



All my brothers did the hard work and I just became the "boss" who
observed them very carefully.



Wow..It is really a big tree. It took us the whole day in the jungle to dig the tree and moved it to the roadside. This is the biggest bonsai I ever see.


AT MY BACKYARD, THE WATER IS SO BLUE AND THE AIR IS SO FRESH. 

I love sea very much.
I am very fortunate to have a house near the sea (actually in the sea when the tide is high)
I am quite good in swimming and diving but still amateur level.
Indeed, sea is my big classroom and nature is my teacher.
My family is my great teacher.
I learn with my dad, my mother and my siblings.



Enjoy the life to the fullest.....


My village's name is Kampung Bakau. The village got its name after this beautiful
mangrove tree ( Pokok Bakau). The nearest boat is ours. I called it "Adventure".


ISLAND HOPPING WITH MY FAMILY IN THE WEEK-END. 
WE ARE BONSAI HUNTER.



 

"Adventure" at Tuba Island, the second largest after Langkawi. Actually there are 
99 islands altogether. With "Adventure" we traveled from one island 
to the other to collect bonsai. We also do lots of fishing 
and diving in a deep sea. What a wonderful life...
All the praise to Allah.
