Lotsa new peeps while I have been away -- nice looking tree Ben.

Husina - I would love to see pics of your hedgehogs ... wow Mig -- all the way from South Africa. I have never been there, I would like to visit someday.

As for me, I prefer the four seasons. It will be snowing when I move to Missouri next month.

Hello guys, I thought I should formally introduce myself.
I've been a member for a few weeks now and learnt a lot from bonsaiempire.. It really is a great website :).

I live in South Africa and currently studying at uct. I have always known about bonsai, but never properly understood them until my friend Jonathan introduced me. He showed me the bonsai and trees he was training. A few months later we went to a bonsai nursery and that's what really got me interested i couldn't believe the age of some of the trees and how awesome they were.

My friend to me that you could propagate trees by air layering and I couldn't believe that it was possible. I researched it a bit and air layered 4 trees around my house. I brought stock from a bonsai nursery not so long after that, an Acacia and an English Myrtle.

Just recently I joined a local bonsai and went to my first meeting last night, the topics were pests and maple. We learnt a lot about the different maple species. I can't wait to get my first maple :D!

:cheer: Welcome MW,

I am hoping that there will be a bonsai club nearby where I am moving in Missouri. If there isn't one -- I will probably start one. I just started myself .. but I have always been interested.

Glad to have you around, hope to see more posts from you.

;) Thnx MW !!

.. Hadn't gotten around to it yet, there is one in Columbia -- it is about 45 miles from where I live. But I am sure this will make it easier to start a chapter in my town.
