Hello Everyone,

I want to share with you all the list of trees that I have selected to turn into bonsai (Photos attached) in upcoming years.

Many of them I have purchased recently and taking care of them for around 2 months. Few of them are old and with me for more than a year.

I know name of some of them and don't know for some of them. I tried to select trees which had small leaves and some movement.

I'll be keeping them as it is without any modification or repotting until feb-end (Winter has come).

All trees have age in the range 2-4 years I think. My main goal is to keep them alive and get used to their environment.

I am also planning to take counse on Bonsai from Bonsai empire so that I have more knowledge on running, wiring, etc by feb-end.

Please feel free to let me know your views.

1. JADE - This one has around 6-7 plants from which I'll try to create forest of jades.




2. Unknown Flowering Shrub of India -




3. Unknown Tree - It gets new leaves as lightred/orange which turns green later on.




4. Unknown Tree - This one gets new leaves as light red kind of color which turns green with age.




5. Carmona (Fukein Tree) 1




6. Carmona (Fukein Tree) 2




7. Carmona (Fukein Tree) 3




8. Ficus




9. Ficus Microcarpa




10. Boxwood Buxus - This one gets white flowers.




11. Thuja - It has lot of dust on it which I need to clean. It has widest trunk of all my trees.




12. Unknown Cypress/Juniper - I have this since last 3-4 months and I have tried little wiring on this one.

Nice beginners collection you got there!

I am thinking about nr 4. Could it be a tea tree (Melaleuca Alternifolia)

Hello Tropfrog,

Thank you.

I checked on google for photos of Melaleuca Alternifolia and it matches little with number 3 of my photos above. No-4 has quite big leaves (I am confused about whether to use it for bonsai yet).

Both number 3 and 4 gets light red/orange leaves initially and then they turn green over time.

Number 3 have very small leaves and Number 4 has big leaves compared to 3.

Actually when I bought number 4 tree, initially there were many light red leaves which turned green and there is no new growth as winter has started.

I'll keep posting updates about how things go.

Thanks for your comment.
