    Any chance at a ID?

    Could it be some kind of Cypress, Cupressus? There is a weeping form. Or False Cypress, Chamaecyparis?

    Ume available in the US?

    It may or may not be a deal breaker for some but all their ume are grafted I believe. I'd look elsewhere considering the price and size, and the fact they're grafted. That's just me thought lol

    Azealia Bonsai Dying

    Replacing dirt with dirt+perlite doesn't make sense. They're both almost exactly the same

    Jumping off the deep end...

    First you need to research what defines a bonsai. Once you have the answer you'll know what to do. You have a green thumb after all 👍 Keeping them IN the home? Or keeping them AT the house? There's a world of difference. Oh and welcome aboard. If you stay long enough you might learn a thing or...

    Germinate seeds on top of each other

    It's like walking 10 miles when you have a car to drive. Certain plants, definitely ficus, roots super easy from cuttings. And the cuttings can be arraigned to fuse as they grow. Can save a year or a couple.

    Coral Maple Game Plan

    You mean figs that produces edible fruits? Figs planted in the ground have no problems with winter in 7a. I see people have them in their front yard in the ground. So I planted two varieties in the yard myself. One had very minor tip die back back while the other was good. Made a bunch of...

    Coral Maple Game Plan

    I found that zone 7 to be great for people lazy with winter protection When I was in Philly, used to be 6b now 7a, I half heartedly mulched some regular maple saplings sitting on the ground and they have no problem at all the following spring. Actually none of my trees had any problems with...

    Newbie--help me with my indoor grow setup please!

    Dude, you're recommending lightbulb well underpowered man. For comparison sake vegetative growing for uhhh 'tomato" indoors is at least 250 PAR. Getting them to flower needs at least 500 PAR. Your light bulb is 20 PAR lol. That would be a total waste of $20+ I did a little unscientific...

    What is wrong with this forum????

    This is an honest question. Why did God blessed you with all that you have, even materialistic things? In other parts of the world people, kids live in fear their life could end any day at any time. Are every one of them inherently bad? Evil? They deserved to be afraid for their lives? When a...

    Newbie--help me with my indoor grow setup please!

    I would wait till they are actively growing new leaves. Buds looks plump so maybe soon if you want. But I would let them grow freely for now though to gain health, that's just me being cautious. They seem to be spaced out well atm. Not shading each other out so no trimming necessary. IMO...

    Newbie--help me with my indoor grow setup please!

    No, the conversation turned into growing outdoor trees indoors in general. While may or may not be a bonsai technique, the elms WILL have to be pruned to fit the particular space, unless that space is the entire room. I agree with Tums. Could be soil is hydrophobic. Soil dried to the point...

    Newbie--help me with my indoor grow setup please!

    Why the need to follow basic bonsai fundamentals?? This thread has nothing to do with bonsai at all. LOL just dishing out the truth, served fresh. AKA reality as stated: knowing the truth will make the outcome less painful.

    Newbie--help me with my indoor grow setup please!

    That's leading her in the wrong direction. This thread has nothing to do with bonsai. Just basic horticulture, or in this case sorta hydroponic. If I read the plan correctly, the trees are sustained by the water in the terrarium. There's reasons why people who've been doing plant things for...

    Newbie--help me with my indoor grow setup please!

    From the very first response to now, 4 pages later to your op people been telling you elms don't play inside. But you kept saying Eastern Leaf says it can grow inside. Sorta implying you didn't like the answers given to you. But I tjink you misunderstood Eastern Leaf. The wording is deceptive...

    Newbie--help me with my indoor grow setup please!

    Long answer is "no" Appears the consensus is 1+1=2, but you want to hear 1+1=11 and for someone to tell you that Guess the only thing to do now is go forward with the project and learn from it.

    Newbie--help me with my indoor grow setup please!

    Just checked out Eastern Leaf myself. This part must have been glossed over. Quite sure what was meant was indoors as in a greenhouse. Not an attic or basement; or a box inside of a room. edit: "sufficient natural lighting"

    Newbie--help me with my indoor grow setup please!

    You folks are reading the OP wrong. Poor guy just wanted to know what it takes to give his elms the best chance at survival indoors. He already spent $100+ on the trees and not want that money to go to waste. I tried to be helpful to give him a simple breakdown of most important items to have...
