Thanks for all th he feed back, i couldn't see myself buying a 1000 dollar tree or plant, I'm just beginning to look into bonsai plants and the know how. I still got to see if my jade will survive cause i really butchered the poor plant. Dumb of me. I'm looking into the 30 to 50 or 60 dollar range. BTW? How do i tell how long its been in the same pot?
In case anyone is looking for a source in the states: www.bonsaiboy.com They are out of New York and I've ordered a few times. The trees are very carefully packaged, the picture you see online is what you get, and they are very healthy. The one time, I received one with a cracked pot, this company rushed out a replacement ASAP. They responded personally to my email inquiry very quickly as well. They will always reply to questions or concerns. So far they have been the best company I have worked with for bonsai. They sell everything from beginner trees that are inexpensive to much older trained trees.
