I grow a few of the normal species most hobbyist think of as bonsai, but probably have more fun with succulents. This Hummel's Sunset found a new home this weekend.
looks great!!!! Any tips for a beginner?
Hi Shane, thanks.
Tips? I don't know. As much sun as possible and don't be afraid to wire. Just keep it a little loose to allow growth.
Did a little pruning and wiring on another one yesterday.
I moved it to 3 gallon pot so it can bulk up some over the spring ans summer.
randy i love seeing the pics and what you are doing with your jades.
Here's a little bigger one I've been playing with.
The trunk is about 3" in diameter at the base.
Randy, there is no pic at that link.
Shane, you're right. All of my photos are gone:-).
So much for that web hosting service.
was hoping to see them to, Ive said it befor but i love seeing your work. In one of your older pics(id have to try and find it again) I think of a ficus, there is a pot in the back ground that the base of a trunk is showing and apears to be about 6-8" in diameter, what is it?
Don't really have any bonsai with trunks like that, but I do grow Adeniums. It might have been one of those.
Noticed the photos are back.
The Salicifolia Trunk Chop posting is the one with a large trunk in the back ground. How many trees do you have? Do you have more photos?
That is a great looking Jade you have really good foresite
That is a ponytail palm.
I lost all of my nice trees Jan 2002 when a mechanical failure froze everything in my greenhouse, so I really don't have any bonsai. I prefer to style and train my own material, so it's a slow rebuilding process:-).
I have a lot of plants, but only a couple hundred are destined to be worked on as bonsai.
a couple hundred!!!!!!!!!! whoa
The pictures were there when I looked today. Don't know where they were before! Beautiful Bonsai including the Hummel's Sunset.
