I am trying to grow this indoors about 5 feet from an East window. It gets no direct sun, It is doing well so far.
It's a little etiolated - the growth is too spindly. More light's needed for it to grow well.
cactusmcharris: You are right, but I do not have any more "Window Spsce"....
Maybe i will try it outside. Here is a photo of a Jade bonsai in small pot. It does not fall over (top heavy) because all the rocks in the pot add weight.
Another jade bonsai....This is one that I wacked the top off about 6 months ago.
This aloe wants to go for a walk far from the pot.
This Gollum jade was my first attempt at working with a plant to make it look like bonsai.
This one was a branch growing low on the first one that I cut off and rooted.
I like seeing my jade plants in a tree form and frequently whack them back to fatten up the trunks.
Nice plants Mike,,,,,,,,,here is my "FINGERS IN A POT"
More fingers ( with red nails )...Is this the red horn tree I see talked about on GW ????
Another Crassula Ovata bonsai in a shallow dish ( from Asian dollar store) The pot that is,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Calif, cool little plants! How big is your 'fingers in pot' Jade? I wish I could tell if what you've got there is red horn but I can't tell them apart unless they're RIGHT next to each other, lol. Even then it's iffy. Thanks for sharing pics. I could look at these guys all day long, it never gets old.
:::: hookilau::: The "Fingers in Pot" is 8 inches tall from bottom of pot to top of plant. Here is another tiny pot with a aeonium hawarthii......The plant is a tip cutting from a large 15 year old mother plant grown outdoors. This plant roots easily.
Crassula Ovata. i like to put plants is smallish pots.
Can I call this a bonsai ??? Hope it will stay small.
Aloe bonsai ??? This is another tip cutting from a huge plant. This pot is about 4 inches wide.
Gasteria has 3 pups on each side of the main plant. Anyone else going to post photos of succulents is shallow pots ??????? I would love to see what you are doing.
Another dish of jade.
"Spider" aloe seems to like the indoors and is showing new growth.
Loved the pics!!!!
Calif, the spider aloe looks great in that little pot & definitely seems to like what you're doing. I see some of the planters are re-purposed, did you drill holes yourself?
Mike, loved your pics too =) I love to see plants in their natural habitat of other folk's homes. I find it challenging to find suitable display opportunities for them (with good light)as opposed to warehousing. I wish I had a room with windows like yours!
We have unfortunately located windows =) I'm still trying to figure out how to work with them. Here's some random pics for ya =)
Hookilau::::::Great photos. Love the skull- good for Halloween. I see you like the top dressing of aquarium fish tank pebbles. I use them often too.
Calif, I acutally kind of like the spindly look of the first one. What kind of succulent is it? Doesn't look like a jade...
Yes, I'm curious too...so is Entree the crayfish, who's naughty enough to be the sole inhabitant of a 55 gal tank with the exception of Buddha & a single clam. Darn invert.
::::: Jwdb and hookilau::::: First photo is Aeonium Spathulatum. It is described as a "woody shrub" Here is a photo from the Internet (Huntington ),,,,,
Not a true bonsai but I've been playing with this A. obesum seedling for a few years trying to make it look like a bonsai.
Antoinette I love your little crayfish. My son just set up an African cichlid tank. Maybe they are aggressive enough to cohabitate with a crayfish? The fish in his other tanks would end up as crayfish snacks.
true bonsai or not, looks really great! Rina
Not to show off...but here's on I potted up today
I don't know which I like more, your pots or your plants. Both are always strangely beautiful.
Caudex :::::NICE !!! That shallow bonsai pot and the rock makes for a great presentation,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Looks like a windswept tree,,,, IT IS OK TO SHOW OFF. Sure have enjoyed you past posts. THANKS.
Loving the jades in this post! I no longer have a jade, boo hoo, but I do have this Trichodiadema, recently potted in a bonsai pot.
And then theres this funky Haworthia, with cactusy friend.
No idea of the species of H. I think its a monstrose form.
yes, please show off! =) I love pics!!
