    Did I Trim Too Much?

    Working on my first Shinpaku from nursery stock. I am worried I did too much pruning and concerned I may have killed the tree. The image with the red markup is what I’m planning for trunk direction. Is this good?

    Helpp! My 2 bonsais have always been beautifully green, well maintained and pruned. They are always kept outside under a small canopy in the partial sun and in the winter they are kept in the garage. However, recently the needles have started to turn completely orange and the bark is peeling...

    HELP! Is it dead?!

    Going to really open up, this is embarrassing for me. I’m 35 yo and my mom is alarmingly obsessed with her bonsai trees. One in particular mut or runt of them actually. I ? understand. It’s not even that big. Like I could fit it in my clear NFL stadium bag and no one would even flinch. Size...

    1st and only bonsai dead?

    Hey all, I picked up a Japanese Maple last summer and I am afraid that it may be dead as it still has zero leaves on it to date. However, I am not ready to let it go because I can see buds attempting to grow on the branches but never getting far before apparently drying out. Here's what I...
