... becouse impatience kills.
I experienced this firsthand. :'''-(
Tree: Plum - Prunus domestica subsp. syriaca var. cerea (Borkh.) Janch.
Pot: Ceramic flowerpot.
Height: 45 cm.
I found this small tree near my block. I've got permission to dig it out.
But I made all possible mistakes.
I was impatient, the root ball was too small and ...
... it doesn't matter because the tree is now dead.
I tried rescue this poor plant but it was too late.
Now I have good material for next tanuki.
I will not waste this "tree" this time.
And remember impatience kills bonsai.
