    I recall there being a thread on these a long ass time ago.
    They're definately off the hook.
    I had one last year but let it get too much sun one day and it was downhill after that.
    A cool hobby if you know what you're doing. They're tricky sonsabitches.

    This should be a good thread. I love these things but I've had terrible luck with them.

    I used to big big time into bonsais. I had a 18 year old juniper procumbens. When I was goughing the deadwood I put a sealer on it that eventually killed the tree. Ever since I havent gone near bonsais. Maybe I will start agian this summer.

    I actually just started, planted the seeds today. Right now i've got a Spruce, and an Apple seed. Im not sure exactly what direction i would like to take them in, i still have alot to look up and research about them. Would you guys with past ones want to kindly share some advice and maybe mistakes and how to avoid them? Oh yeah, my folks just got a japanese maple i was thinking about trying to get one of those going, i figured the more i had going the better chance at LEAST one of them would turn out well.

    To be honest I don't know what I'm doing either. But I know you got to cut the roots when it gets to the height you want. At least I think that how it works.

    Check this tiny grape. *pic is stolen This summer I'd like to do something with grape.
