It’s customary to add moss to bonsai when they will be on display. I was trying to figure out where I could find some, and lo and behold, I found a batch on the side of our house.
I started applying, and finished, while holding my son in one arm while applying with the other. It certainly seems to be a craft in itself, but adding moss does add a grandeur to the tree that it didn’t have before. This tree is immature for showing, but being the club president I decided to take the initiative to show a tree this year in hopes to motivate other club members. I plan on removing the wire the night before the show, and only adding some back on if necessary.
