I here you, but my love of succulents is a thing apart from my bonsai. I have a couple old bonsai jades but I am not really very excited about the and probably will eventually get rid of them. As nice as your jade planting is and though many jade plantings qualify as bonsai, to me they are all still jade plants first.Appearance is everything in bonsai, so just like every other common bonsai, you need to find something that has a tree-like look. My wife's friend moved to Florida and gave me her Jades that had been in terracotta pots for 20+ years. I have ganged them into a forest.
