    I Have Two

    They haven't died yet! Yay for me. One is a little dwarf pomegranate plant, one is a little jasmine one. I got them from a bonsai vendor, hopefully they still count. I haven't named them... Part of me thinks I should.

    Wish I Knew How To Grow One

    I don't know much about Bonsais, but they are cute.  Seems like a lot of effort goes into them, even more so that the plants im growing now.  I just don't have the time honestly.  Would have to learn, and act accordingly in response with the tree.  Maybe...

    Mini-bodhi

    I thought it would be a cool / fitting idea to make a bonsai version of Ficus religiosa / the Sacred Fig / the Bodhi Tree, then found someone else has done it, which is awesome:

    The Sellout
