    Cork Bark Jade (Portulacaria Afra) is no longer growing leaves and instead is growing tiny compact brown clusters. What are these things?

    My Portulacaria Afra (that im trying to grow into a cascade style bonsai), stopped growing leavess and started pushing out these strange compact brown clusters instead. Does anyone here have any idea what is happening? Im wondering if this means that it's time to defoliate it completely?

    Help with P. afra bonsai foliage issues

    This Portulacaria afra plant used to be way fuller, but for the last month a lot of the foliage has fallen and the tiny leaves that emerge afterwards don’t last long and/or are super thin/flat. Is this a watering or light problem? Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!

    Changing pots? (Portulacaria afra)

    Hi! I’ve just gotten a new cutting from a few months ago and I’m looking to let it grow out for a while so i can maybe (hopefully) begin the process of turning it into a bonsai.
