Two years ago (July 2017) I took my first bonsai class. We learned to prune and repot a small Jaboticaba and then moved to a procumbens juniper. I decided to track my progress here on bnut since you don't see many jaboticaba posted. I have been working on improving branch taper over the past few years. The main branches are thick and out of scale so I have been gradually cutting back to smaller branches to improve this.

Still working on taper for that central thick trunk. I have my next cut back planned but would like the branch I cut back to strength more first.

I have one. As a house plant and not a bonsai per say. They're relatively easy to keep happy indoors so long as they get enough light and don't allow them to dry out too much. Cheers.

I keep this one outside late spring through early fall and under a grow light in my basement with a heating pad in winter.
