This shape is similar to cascade bonsai but the tree never grows below the pot including branches.
Even though there are many styles, this shape will show an old natural tree feeling more easily.
Key points to make this shape
1. similar to cascade style
2. cascade grows downwards but semi cascade grows more horizontally
3. having branches growing slightly upwards looking for the sun light makes a good natural growth
4. most importantly, any branches or the trunk must not be located below the pot (line A in the picture)
