After a lengthy period of worrying about whether or not Balls was going to survive (due to his lack of leaves), Balls went to bonsai class to get confirmation of whether or not he was in good health or not. Under Tina’s watchful eye, his remaining three branches were trimmed, revealing greenness and therefore that he was still alive.
It was decided that the main part of Balls would be put more under the dirt to give him a chance to make a fighting come-back. It will be interesting to watch his progress over the next couple of months- through winter and into spring!
Fingers crossed for a full recovery!!
