Introduce yourself! 4 months 6 days ago #47019

Hey guys!

Esteban here in New York City, USA! New to Bonsai kinda. I tried growing a Japanese Maple last year and got it to sprout, but as I was transferring from the plastic seedling container to a pot, it dropped, and unfortunately paid the price.

I was gifted a kit (again), and taking MUCH better care. I have a Pinus (sprouted), Jacaranda, Piscea, and Delonix. Definitely have questions but I'll ask in the appropriate threads!

HI everyone!
I'm virtus from the US. My grandfatther had a beautiful bonsai tree that impressed me as a youth. He passed away many years ago and so did the tree, but I've had the itch to start my own. I have a background in art, so I've only been able to draw some quick bonsai sketches (like my profile picture). Hopefully I'll start a real one soon. I started an underwater bonsai tree recently, so we'll see how that goes.
Anyway, thanks for the knowledge and experiences that you share!

:huh:

WTF is an underwater bonsai?

Your drawing is great. The plant on the drawing however would not be a great bonsai. It looks very unnatural and, where it concerns styling, it has major flaws.

I'm a bit disappointed that you did not post that url to that site that automatically fills it in and clicks the search button for me.

Aquascaping is awesome. But it's not bonsai.
