    I love these trees and I would love to learn how to grow one! SO beautiful and perfectly miniature.

    I hope things work out with El Salvador! I love having plants around but I lack the time and discipline to care for them. I’m sorry about your bonsai trees but it looks like you are totally capable of finding replacements!

    I have been growing bonsai for 35 years and have many scattered about. So often I have heard this approach to Bonsai but can’t stress enough bonsai is really no more than the art of pruning. the real success lies in knowing everything you can about the species of tree you are growing. I have trees that I’ve had for 35 years so they must be happy, we live, survive and grow old together.

      35 years. I’m sorry for butchering the art with my mallsai 🙁

      I’m only two years in. I have a few trees in the ground to thicken up.

  6. Indeed nature is beautiful and even therapeutic! I aspire to have a mini garden.Here in India we have a tradition of worshiping a plant(Basil) within our households, and trust me that certainly is therapeutic and healing even if I don’t look at it from the religious point of view

    Nature is indeed beautiful and it takes lot of time and feelings to shower the love to plants to make them healthy!

    These are such cute plants but never had any of my own! I wouldn’t know how to keep one alive! Definitely a good read!

    This is so cool! During my last semester of graduate studies, to sort-out the stress of it all, I started growing a variety of citrus plants in coffee cups (and handing many to friends and family). It was a great way to accomplish small achievements throughout the week.

    Such a wonderful post.

    I have never had a green thumb but I did have a bonsai plant and it thrived so well with little maintenance!

    I have always loved Bonsai, it is something that I have always wanted to get into. It’s just finding the time.

    I know nothing about plants and yet I found your post very peaceful and beautiful. Perhaps, I dare suggest even inspired to do a little more caring of plants myself. I’m sorry your plant was stolen. That was very rude, and disappointing. I hope you can find some new bonsai to love.
