There are many places online to order from

what is your price range?



Do you know what kind of ficus you might be interested in? Have you checked around your local greenhouses?

I wish there was a meme/gif with a super sketch looking dude wearing a tan colored trench coat, smoking a joint, at night, in the rain, on a city street corner.....opening the coat to reveal several mame and shohin bonsai sitting in large pockets made specifically for holding bonsai trees.
Caption reads: "Take a look at these!.....Trees!"

If you do Facebook...reach out to Jason Schley there through messenger with a budget.

My friend just bought this one from him...as I made the initial contact...being a middle man...I sent photos to her of her chosen budget. She chose this one...received_145581650955325.jpeg

and I couldn't pass this one up.

Hey everybody I really appreciate the replies. This forum is great. My budget isn't super high right now as I am brand new into this. I don't want to spend a whole lot because there is a chance I kill the tree.

You may need to see about what your local box store has. Mallsai (mass produced product) is a good stepping stone for less money.

My friend paid $75 plus shipping. Mine was a bit more...if that is to high
.I suggest box stores. Good luck to you.

Growing seasons around the world vary widely and it is difficult to get a perspective on what someone says when we don't know where in the world they are. If you go to the upper right hand corner and click on your Icon, you can add your location and people will be able to customize advice for you.

Everyone needs to crawl before they learn to walk. Starting with cheap big box nursery plants works well. Remember, the horticulture and art ends of bonsai are two entirely separate entities. You will kill lots and make some that look like the need killin' so learning as cheap as possible is productive after all.

@Jaag, give a call to Aposhian Gardens in West Valley. I am not sure if they are still keeping their tropical greenhouse going, but they used to have a range of ficus from large houseplants down to small cuttings, and at very reasonable prices.

That is perfect. Thank you for that. Nice to see someone else on here in Utah.
