Penjing with running water fall 1
We had a competition on South African bonsai forum. It was penjing composition. The size and development of the trees was not important…the composition part of it was.
I took a slate stone slab and arranged some stones onit.
Measured where the pump will be and marked it on the slate.
Divided this into 2 pools and put a short plastic pipe between the two pools. Cemented it to form two small pools ad put some sand on the wet concrete to be embedded in to it for natural effect. Left it to dry .
Positioned the pump into the upper pool, after connecting it to a short pipe, passing through a hole in the cup, and put cement over the white plastic cup so no soil or sand enters the pool and damages the pump
I added another line of stones on the outside so i can plant in between.
I first added some bonsai soil and over it some muck. a mix of moss and soil. Suitable plants were planted in the holes between the stones, and moss in between.
Here is the water fall in action…the water is circulated between the two pools.
And the finished product… It is still alive 6 month later. I water it with a spray bottle.
