    yea...

    i started growin bonsai after i got into all types of trouble so you know, it kinda kept me humble, outta trouble, my mind offa certian things, like a therapy

    i just got done watering mine as a matter of fact

    a friends father taught me how to do it, he came from puerto rico and has been doin bonsai since he got to the states so thats like 20+ years under his belt


    but nah dont buy an already grown tree it defeats the purpose

    grow your own so you can shape it to represent what YOU want it to be

    not what some dude at the mall did among 100's

    patience... patience... goes hand in hand with bonsai

    you can bonsai pretty much anything. you can bonsai marijuana if you wanted to. my friends father bonsai's native trees to the area and a few plants from puerto rico and makes little forests that look like if you went out to the suburbs, like he took the forest and shrunk it and put it outside on his porch

    love 'em !

    I cut a documentary one banzi once.
    There was this 80 year old dude in singapore who had an entire garden filled with them.
    Apparently he sells something like 5 trees a year and it's enough to keep him well paid.
    He had one tree that was his great grandfather's first tree. Things like 150 years old!
    It was so old an gnarly looking (picture the Tree in Sleeepy Hollow).

    I want one, but I'm not sure if I could handle it.
    Maybe I'll stick with the ivy.
