newby needing help

ronwelNovember 20, 2012

I received this tree about a week ago, and know almost nothing about bonsai. I can tell it was beautiful at some point, and would like to get it back there if that's even possible.

Can anyone tell me what kind of tree this is so i can do some research? And of course any advice here at all would be greatly appreciated.

tapla (mid-MI z5b-6a)

It's Ulmus parvifolia.

How have you been caring for it (more info is better - indoors? windowsill? watering/fertilizing habits? ever repotted/when? soil type .....), and where do you live?

You might consider adding your location to your user info, like my z5b-6a mid-MI.
