    Rosemary pre-bonsai is dying

    This established nursery rosemary was obtained in the summer, kept indoors in well lit area until winter. Now we have less light coming in, furnace is drying the air out, and it's been lightly pruned a few times (for shape and to thin it out). It has gone from full and lush to browning needles...

    Large ficus progression (first post in a while)

    I wrote out the story of how I acquired the tree and the photos show a thorough progression. I initially purchased it from Hollow Creek when they sold off a large part of their tropical collection (maybe 3 years ago?). Its been a work in progress ever since and always a champion putting out...

    Streamlining My Collection

    I'm going to try and sell a few of my projects to make some bench space so I can narrow my focus on more developed trees. Don't expect any show-stoppers, but I'll try to make the prices enticing enough. I may even sell some of my nicer pots. If I don't have any takers on here, I might try the...

    Leaning Juniper Progression

    I'll lead off with a couple of photos to hook you, and then I'll fill in the gaps ;) May 2016: December 2016: Back in May I acquired this Juniper. It's one of the vigorous varieties of J. chinensis, most likely Prostrata. When I got it, there were a lot of brown tips and dead spots, but it...

    WTB Elm and Maple pre-bonsai

    Living in orlando it's hard to find any elm or maple (pre)bonsai in the area that are somewhat affordable for someone working a minimum wage job like myself, anyone know of some good places to look or does anyone have any they would be willing to part with?

    Looking for Zelkova Material

    I'd really like to have a small broom-style zelkova but I'm having a hard time finding any material. I'm not necessarily looking for a "finished" tree, but something less developed with potential. Any and all recommendations appreciated! Thanks!

    First Foemina

    Yes, a confirmed foemina sighting! Man, they are sharp little buggers! This is my first - just having some fun and practice with it. I forgot to do a proper "before" picture, but I remembered to snap one before the top came off at least . . .

    New yamadori

    Hi there everyone, been a little while since I've posted something. found a new spot with some very promising material. The species is Ceanothus cuneatus. I ended up with like eight of them. From what little information I could find, they can only spread their seeds by wildfire. Also I read that...
