Nice bonsais folks.

A bonsai swamp cypress for the tank?
Only the roots are in the water of course.

I suddenly really want to make a root-over rock "Lone Cypress" (Pebble Beach CA) themed bonsai planting... that would be incredible. Anyone seen anything like that?

The would be nice. I don't think I've seen one, maybe once in the Brooklyn, NY botanical garden.

I don't know how I'd go about doing it and it would likely cost several hundred dollars or years... Haha

You'd have to get a stunning rock. That would cost $$$.

Exactly. If you've been there, you know how much depth there is to its surroundings...

However a large large rock overlooking a small pond with a pretty large/medium tree would be cool...

Wow, that's beautiful. Almost makes you wonder how it's not tipping over... in such a tiny pot.
