Hey everyone, have any of you ever heard of someone using a rainbow eucalyptus for bonsai? I see that there are several eucalyptus posts on this forum, but none with a rainbow. It seems as though it is feasible to do. They are very fast growing, and I think it would be a pretty cool looking tree to have in a pot. Any thoughts?

First off; Whoa.
I have never heard of them before, but I think it would be really cool to try to Bonsificate them. It's a word.
I reckon you should follow the care guidelines of regular eucalyptus Bonsais if you want to try it.
Remember they are subtropical, so you may have to keep it indoors depending on your location. May I ask which country you are in?
I live in Michigan, U.S. I suppose I would treat it like my tiger bark ficus. Summer outside and when the temps hit low 50s or so bring them in. I have a nice south facing window so it works well. I was just curious if anyone had tried it. I'm going to give it a shot!
