    Jade Forest

    Nothing extravagant but here is a Jade forest I've created from a clearanced bunch purchased from Wally World. I let the individual plants dry like cuttings & wired them down in a cedar box crafted with my dad. :D

    I got my first bonsai tree about three weeks ago so I do not know too much about them. I've attached a picture of the trunk (the full picture of it is my profile picture) What I am concerned about is the very bottom of the trunk. Is this something I need to worry about or is this a normal...
