@sam Thank you so much for that reference! And thanks for all the work you all are doing! Happy new year!
How do you guys feel about a “Ryan the house doctor” live stream, in which Ryan does an occasional visit to students Bonsai gardens and evaluates the gardens health conditions, sun exposure, potential disease and pest solutions and aesthetics? I have not scrolled the entirety of the post on this topic so forgive me if this has already been suggested and if it has, I obviously like the Idea.
Hey @Reno_David! This is such a fun idea–maybe it could happen someday but at the moment Ryan’s schedule is a little too packed to fit this into it as well. I love the creativity and hope we can do something like this someday!
I still would love to learn the nuances of pinus nigra. Pinus cembra would be great also!
@max we are definitely working on this one! Just looking for the right material. We’ll get there, I promise!
I LOVED the dwarf Alberta nursery stock stream because I have attempted exactly what Ryan did there and was very discouraged. He hit every snag with a fix and now I can go back and fix my tree! I still would love to see a Hinoki nursery stock stream!
I’d like to see more nursery stock streams in general. That’s what most of us are working with, but I get that Ryan doesn’t have many trees like that.
The streams that really appeal to me are those that involve initial and continuing styling with detailed content of pruning techniques etc. It’s important to me to see the trees that have been styled and worked on as they develop over time. I love the Mirai streams. I don’t think the content recently had been a a good as some of the past streams. In no way do I mean that negatively I just mean they haven’t captivated me in the way they did in the past.
I would +1 Strooz idea, but 9Fingers makes an awesome suggestion (not the part about peeking). Thanks!
Is it possible for a members to “dial-in” and ask Ryan questions directly? Livestream or forum, of course you still have to screen the questions. It might help save time and permits clarification of the question.
Just a thought.
Could you create a featured content around moss cultivation as Ryan quickly describes in Live Q&A LI https://live.bonsaimirai.com/library/video/live-qa-li

Hello, just wondering if a feature for the conclusion of the dwarf alberta spruce stream is still planned?
Hi! Yep, still planning on it, just haven’t had time yet
This is a great idea, thanks! I’ll add it to the list.
Hey Tim! Thanks for this suggestion–at this time we don’t have plans to offer a feature like this (mostly because of the difficulties with screening) but we are always looking for ways to streamline and make the system work more effectively!
Also, Ryan said on Live Q&A 117 he needs to update the heat bed construction feature video with some new information. Hopefully you can get to that sometime soon. Thanks again for all your hard work!
Thank you @Sam! Makes sense. Another time then.
Hello Mirai Team,
- more satsuki videos especially trees in development stage (so that we can follow development over several years/seasons)
with Ryan and special guests (like the one with Peter Warren)
Definitely have azaleas on our list for the next time we get to work with Peter! Satsuki is not one of Ryan’s specialities (I don’t think we have any in the garden currently) so we have to go to other professionals on that one. Noted on sakura, will add that one to the list as well.
Live and Forum Q&A with special Guests
Reading the feedbacks from @Sam that Ryan has (yet) to learn some species (and who knows, fall in love with Satsuki and Sakura as he felt in love with deciduous … ),what about inviting Peter and the likes from time to time in the Q&A … which will be dedicated to some species so that we can efficiently use the time of the guests on their preferred trees? Not necessary for them to travel: videoconference system can perfectly make the work, maybe image quality can be at a level which will make the video team unsatisfied …
