TPT Bonsai Thread! Show off your collection!

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

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 :proud:

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

Yay!!

If it wasn't for it being night, I'd take some pictures..


I will take some in the morning!! I love your elm btw. The nebula is crazy.

Geniusdudekiran 04-24-2012 03:01 AM

Lil' Swimz$ 04-24-2012 03:11 AM

Oh man, I'm not good at pricing things, and I've never bought/shopped for a shaped bonsai before, just raw material.. so this will be bad but um $50??

Warlock 04-24-2012 03:12 AM

Geniusdudekiran 04-24-2012 03:12 AM

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 :D I need to buy more wire though :(

I'm thinking
