    Sakai Tancho Kohaku development

    Here's my Sakai Tancho Kohaku's growth. Waiting for her to put on girth, most probably upon hitting yonsai.

    Really nice to see the tancho stay proportionate.
    Good job on raising her.

    Thanks everyone. This one has 100% been cosmetically fixed when she was around 50cm when I got her. Good thing is that the strength of the beni remained and continued to grow stronger as she grew.

    The most recent photo shows the edges of the maruten becoming uneven. Normally when I see that I think of the maruten receding. In this instance, it is actually the beni expanding. I would guess that it is becoming what it was before cosmetic enhancement. The maruten may not be so perfect now, but it seems it will not be going away anytime soon.
