    Chamaecyparis Pisifera 'Filifera Aurea'

    I bought mine as a nursery stock and been growing it since 2012.. When i got it, it was only bout less than a pencil thick. They are very slow grower. But this is only pot grown since i had it. I treat it like a hinoki. They like water and fertilizer.. And lots of sun. But dont let it dry out.

    Gifting the bonsai hobby: for $350, what to buy for the ideal starter set?
