    Just got my first Brazilian rain tree :)

    So I just received my BRT and I love it! The only thing is the trunk is stick straight, I'm wondering when BRTs start to flute/flatten? Also I am thinking of keeping it in this pot to let it grow and settle in a bit, is that a good idea or should I transfer it to a bonsai pot? Thanks for the help!

    Bonsai Newby with Monkey Thorn -

    A friend gave me a monkey thorn (At least that is what I think it is) Although I have a few ficus bonsai and a jade, I’m still fairly new to bonsai. Any advice about this tree? I live in Orlando Florida, so also need advice on how much Florida sun this guy would like. Thanks in advance!

    Small windswept shimpaku juniper - initial styling

    Hey folks! I've dabbled in bonsai for about a year, but I'm pretty new to this forum.

There are two long branches on one side, a...
