Our show is divided into two sections -- the Main Room and the In-Progress Room. The Main Room is where mature bonsai are shown, while the In-Progress room shows newer work, usually plants that have been worked on for less than 3 years. These plants illustrate how just a bit of work can begin to make a nice bonsai.

Many members of our club work with shohin, that is bonsai that are less than 10 inches tall. We often have spectacular ones at our show.
