I just bought two jade trees today and tried my best to develop them into bonsais according to everything I learned til now.
This was them before my styling
For the left one, I only pruned it so that the leaves look like an umbrella and I really have no further ideas of whether I need to shape it into other ways.
And for the right one, I want to experiment on whether it can become a root over rock piece. So I wrapped its roots on a big rock and them placed it inside a plastic tube made from a big plastic bottle. I then bent the truck and took out as much as the branches as possible to let it look like a cascade tree. I am not sure if I need to further defoliate it, or just leave it like this until it develops further.
I would be really grateful if you can give me some advice on what I can do further. And if there is anything I did wrong/alarming, which could hurt the tree, please also let me know. Thank you so much!
