TPT Bonsai Thread! Show off your collection!

So a couple people were suggesting we do this. So we are

Post pics, list species, anything special you're doing, just summarize and talk even if no one is listening, etc.

I'll start.




My Chinese Elm and first bonsai. Got this guy in mid-late February of this year. I'm surprised it's fared this well with everything I've put it through. It's bouncing back though

I'll post pics of my Maple tomorrow, it's cheering up after its 2 day ride in a dark USPS box.

Awesome thread! Lets see some more pictures!!!

As I said in your other post, I took a break from the hobby when my trees ( only about 5) all died to to a series of unfortunate events. I just recently started getting interested again when I was asked to participate in a workshop at a local school. The stock was terrible though, but the lecture was good. Anyways, I'm too embarrassed of the current one I have to post pictures. But I will find a photo of a ficus I used to have.

Soon I'm going to see if I can find some decent stock at a local garden center an start some rudimentary training I need to buy more wire though

I'm thinking
