Hello! My name is Brian. I am 43 years old and live in Southern California zone 9b. For the last 15 years i have been heavily involved with keeping and breeding poison dart frogs and that led me to my love of plants. Miniatures, tropical's, orchids, flowering landscape plants, all of them! So much so I convinced the wife to let me build a greenhouse lol! I also keep tortoises. I guess I have an overall love of nature in general. I am very new to bonsai. In fact I know almost nothing except what I have learned from reading online for the last few months. I am looking forward to learning more and starting my first bonsai soon. My experience in the past has been that forums with people who have real experience is so much more rewarding and informative than the info you get online. Hoping that I can learn from all of you experienced growers.

Hello! I'm Chris from the Southeastern US (zone 8b). I've been gardening for years, but I'm new to bonsai. I'm especially interested in yamadori since I have several of the popular species used for bonsai growing in my yard (chinese elm, azaela, camellia). I'm here to learn!
