    Nice!

    I just started dinking around with this a few months ago, and rooted a small pruning from one of my umbrella trees. It isn't much to look at right now, but I'm stoked it's working as planned.

    Further updates in a year or two!

    I have killed my fair share of Bonsai trees. Apparently, wildly fluctuating temperatures are not good for them.

    Nice trees, middle one looks really cool. I had a Japanese juniper, nana iirc. It died when I moved to TX, probably shocked it as it was in the twenties and snowing when I got here then it got horribly humid. Whenever I get back to L.A. I plan to try again, this time with a CA Juniper. I have some neat pics of Bonsai' from my visit to the huntington gardens in Pasadena this year.

    Those are amazing. I would love to know how old each of them are. Btw, the middle tree is doing wonderfully, but the other two had a rough trip and lost a lot of leaves. One is finally coming back, but the other is still struggling. I have a moisture meter now so I can make sure they are properly watered, but the winter sun up north is short. I should have ordered them in the summer instead.

    The photos from Huntington Garden make me want to burn my trees.

    Was anyone else's first thought "I wonder how many small handle scales I could get out of that maple tree?"

    Thanks. I love it too, and it was the reason my wife and I bought this house.
