"HAWAIIAN DRAGON"
CUSTOM COLLECTION

                HAWAIIAN DRAGON styling are our "fun bonsai" to create bonsai with lively lines to interpret the twisty-turny active dragon.  We start training while seedlings are less than a year old to condition the tree to have a twisted trunk from the start.  All of our staff take turns establishing the early bends as we try to create a range of styling.  Dragons are first offered when 3-5 years old as 4LL8-D.  Some of the most interesting are selected to be trained and offered as 8LS8-D when most are 6-8 years in training. 

               CUSTOM COLLECTION HAWAIIAN DRAGONS are often the demonstration trees for our Advanced Workshops at the Fuku-Bonsai Cultural Center.  When the training includes extending the roots, it may take 3 to 5 years before the roots are heavy enough to support the tree and to remove the aluminum foil collar.  So most Entry-level Custom Collection Dragons are at least 10 years in training.

              Having invented the styling concept,  we are creating guidelines and am moving towards restyling each tree each time it is repotted every few years.  So we try to have a selection of extra branches to come up with a nice structure that becomes more complex each time it is repotted at a different angle or with a new primary "front." 

             HAWAIIAN DRAGONS are for non-traditional hobbyists who tend to smile.  For those who seek challenges, working on older trees that already have a lot of character and potential gives you the greatest opportunities for creation.  A lot of the early training provided a lot of character and a lot of roots that are already well established.  We will offer these especially in the entry-level stages to give the new owner-trainers the challenge of creation.  If you enjoy these challenges, I urge you to join our study group.  For more information, contact me at david.f@fukubonsai.com

         HAWAIIAN DRAGON is our newest and most challenging styling and we are still in the exploration stage and developing a full range of variations. This styling can be very complex as dragon concepts can be used to train the trunk and branches (top dragons) or the exposed roots (bottom dragons) or both (top & bottom dragons)!  Our ideal climate makes us successful in growing this styling.  Customers in cooler climates growing Roots or Hawaiian Dragons indoors year-around report that it takes much longer for the roots to thicken to support the tree and this is more so when we twist to create more character in the roots.  There is a limited selection of Hawaiian Dragon Custom Collection.  If you have a preference, please provide as much description as possible with a price range and we will try to fill your requirements if you allow us enough time.
