Hello everybody, here is my cascade juniper ( a procumbens Nana). I started it in 1994 from a one gallon size nursery material. I didn't know any better at the time (before I had any classes) so I just simply tilted it on one side and let it hang down from the pot, without pruning anything!. After a few years , the exposed roots dried up and was naturally jinned. Then some of the low hanging branches died too and they became jin. I maintained it by some wiring and light trimming throughout the years. I should have trim it a little bit more for this picture though, now that I see it in picture. The pot is 17cm tall (about 7 inches).
By the way, what is the method for taking height measurement of a cascade bonsai?
Thanks to everybody for sharing their trees here. Pan Tao's pictures of trees from China are truly inspiring.

Thanks Si,

nicely developed juniper during the years.
The cascade is measured from top to bottom,from tip of the apex to the tip of the lowest cascading limb.

Thanks Dorothy, now I know. I had submitted a cascade tree in the A.o.B. contest a few months ago and I only measured it from the top rim of the pot to the top of the apex, leading to a really small number. That's why some people commented that it was such a small tree! Now I know why. Well, live and learn I guess. Have a good holiday!
Si
