All videos are great source of knowledge and I’m watching them many times over and over again and I’m still able to get (and to understand) new portion of knowledge.
What would be very helpful (at least from my perspective):

  • One major table of content - what you can find in a specific video

  • Few major takeaways from a given video (with a reference to the portion of the clip) that Ryan is emphasizing in that clip

From the stream topics perspective definitely:

  • how to collect trees (you’ve mentioned several times that you are doing tree hunt with Mirai team - just take Ricardo with you (and help him with caring the equipment :wink: ))
  • clear breakdown of a given tree with emphasizing development areas and refinement areas
  • Pinus sylvestris and Junniperus communis more, more, more! :smile:

For that is it but I think that I have more to follow.
Will keep you posted :wink:

I’d like to have Jan Culek or Erik Chrisovensky teaching us the secrets of their cement-based containers so we can experiment ourselves creating tailor-made containers for our trees.

Thanks for the feedback! Have you seen the traditional design stream where we work on a sylvestris? https://live.bonsaimirai.com/archive/video/pinus-sylvestris . Always room for more obviously but I wanted to make sure you’ve seen that one.

Ryan has definitely done a great job at explaining winter storage/protection, but I’d love some more info on how to set up a garden for the growing season as far as sun/shade, bench construction, layout/organization, etc.

Would love to see a stream on larix.

Also, what about doing a video wearing those video camera glasses so can see what Ryan sees from same point of view?

Would love to see some Zelkova streams. Love that species and grows very well on Vancouver Island where I’m located.

Hi Kendall.
I Tried the link for the Pinus Sylvestris stream, but it doesnt work for me.
Tried to scroll through the archive, but cant find the stream.
log out, restarted browser - still the same.
Im probably doing something wrong, but could you check if the pinus stream is still online?
Best regards Christian H.

A mini documentary on this would be sweet! Seeing the development over the last year or so, I know how much work you guys have done to produce a high level stream and then all the amenities needed to make bonsai mirai such a great leaerning tool and community! So many moving parts!

https://live.bonsaimirai.com/archive/video/pinus-sylvestris - you can copy/paste the url in your browser if it’s not working. The stream title was changed to ‘traditional design’ and you will see it in the archive as well.

I would like to see some discussion of non-traditional stylings…Ryan already delves into this from time to time “breaking” the rules, but I think it would be cool to give examples of when it was appropriate and when it went “too far” all in one place. Basically speaking about the “art” side of the practice and how we can push the boundaries or the art form.

I loved the soil stream. One like this on fertilizers/amendments would be nice.

A general steam about common disease prevention/recognition/treatments (I realize this one could possibly be too regional).
