Welcome to the empire.

Please note that the plant you have bought should be outside, and not in your living room. Inside it will slowly die.

That's what these shops that sell these plants say. They also say it's a bonsai.

Chris, pictures?

I love dawn redwood and bald cypress. We have a dawn redwood in the front yard and cuttings from it growing in the bonsai porch.

Bonsai is an art. Art is made by artists. This tree is massproduced for a market by a Company to gain profit. But dont despair. If you want you can become an artist and make it a bonsai. It is not too late, it is still a young tree.

Have a look here, so you better have an idea what sort of criteria are used to call something a bonsai. I think that might help towards how you make a tree into bonsai: www.growingbonsai.net/why-is-my-tree-not-a-bonsai/

Hi my name is Neil and I am from the Philippines. I just recently started with the hobby and most of my knowledge are from YouTube but definitely still a newbie and still a long way to go.
