    Elm(en)tree

    So I cheated, I didn’t make this, I bought it. Also, it came from zone 6 or 7, so it might even wake up in my brutal winter (it seriously is brutal, too hot to go without AC but not hot enough to justify turning it on). Anyways, I think I wanna raise it 2 or 3mm to expose some roots. It’s...

    What’s going on with my Chinese elm ??

    I purchased my first tree (an 8 year old Chinese elm) and it’s arrived with these kind of markings all over the trunk. Really new to this and I can’t find any answers online so I’m just wondering if anyone could tell me what this is/if I need to do anything. Thank you !!

    Hi all! I'm completely new to this hobby. I received a bonsai as a present in late august! From the information I've gathered it seems that it was ordered online but other than that I have no more context on where it came from. It's a Chinese Elm, that is (unconfirmed) 7 years old. I'll just...

    No, not me.. Just slip potted these 2 little elms in to the ground (yeah could have done in Spring but at least this gives them a head start and its one job out the way). The middle Elm is actually the bottom half of the BIG one on the right. They both make up my first ever tree, my cookie...

    New Bonsai Chinese elm

    I went to Garland's in Corvallis (can't recommend enough!) And bought a Chinese elm in a pot. Looks to me to be about 5 years old (I could and probably am so WRONG). I enjoy the trunk which is why I bought it but upon further inspection it looks like it was planted quite deep in the pot? I...

    Ugly Ducklings - Suggestions, advice please

    Hello, So these are 3 trees (1 is not an elm but 2 are so went in the Elm section, sue me!), that are my more experiment, worthless (apart from sentimental) and have no natural positives. So take off your master bonsai cap, with your taper and nebari talk and think more for fun and see what...

    Soil damp for too long

    Hello. New to this forum looking for help about a Chinese Elm. The soil stays damp for at least a week, sometimes longer. The soil not only looks and feels damp, but the chopstick confirms it: it feels moist and comes out with soil on. I believe this is harmful for the tree. Should I repot it...
