BonsaiAutumn 2011 demos Budi Sulystio

Budi Sulistyo is considered to be the 'godfather' of bonsai in Indonesia. He was the exotic highlight of this convention. They offered him two Eur0ppeen tree species which he never had worked with before. But he saw pictures of such trees, of course. First Budi worked with a European spruce (Picea abies) which was collected in Switzerland. In the end the tree looked very much like natural spruces at the timberline in the Alps. Then Budi worked on a Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris). He crated a nice small bonsai of it although he never had worked on any pine before. We are glad to have met such a bonsai master and gentleman.
