5th Asia-Pacific Bonsai Friendship Federation Convention and Exhibition

bonsai general - 39 views



Earlier this month, the Bonsai Federation of Asia and the Pacific Friendship held its 5th Annual Convention and Exposition Rin Rin Park, Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam. It seems it was an event. The exhibition was huge, with more than 200 bonsai. Hương Hồ Trung was kind enough to send photos of the event – thanks Trung! They make a good case for Vietnamese bonsai.

Most varieties are tropical and tropical plants from religious Wrightia dominates. Their trunks show age and character. sheet size is small, although it can be displayed with or without leaves.

Individual bonsai acquire many styles. Most follow patterns I know, but others lead in different directions – more on this later this week. Today, I hope you enjoy the highlight of the exhibition ABFF 5th.
