    Bonsai Trees Anyone??

    I just bought three bonsai trees. Does anyone else do the bonsai thing? I am new to it.

    Here are my new 'tree children'.

    I did it for quite some time. When we got our dog 1 1/2 years ago, the little bugger up rooted all of them, and would run around the yard shaking the life out of them! It was something I enjoyed, and were great points of interest.

    By the way, nice kitchen!

    Yep, I've killed my share of trees. Looks like those are all tropical. Fukien Tea, Banyon and another Tea or star serissa?

    Pretty good guessing. They are (in no order) Mount Fuji Serissa, Baby Jade, and Pink Serissa and are supposedly good for indoors.

    They are good for indoors. Watch out for bugs and remember your atomizer.

    Thanks for the tips. The middle tree is seventeen years old, and I would hate to have bugs (or Pierre's dogs) do it in.

    Yeah, Jazz is a big bug! She thinks if anything is "mine" and I'm not there, she has to protect it. That usually means it gets the crap chewed out of it.

    I have a few Japanese black pines that I have raised from seedlings for 15 years and some eastern white pines I dug up in Pennsylvania about 20 years ago. The more I learn about these trees the less I realize I know.

    Black pine = black gold

    I had a beautiful juniper I dug out of the sandhills, hiding in some cactus, 28"high, and 3" near the base, I didn't even need to wire it up. After 4 years of root training, got it into a larger bonsai pot. It was the first to go... I just bought some cyprus, trident maple, and black pine seeds that will soon start the stratification process.
