I've been trying to cultivate bonsai trees from clippings, still new to it but I've got 2 started and in pots. It doesn't take much time really (though they aren't tolerant of neglect), but it will be a couple years before they look like actual trees.

There's a nearby bonsai museum and it's just shocking what can be done.

Do you remember what first drew your interest?

I got one last spring as a birthday present, I had commented that I really like them in passing. Probably not the best gift to give as they do require daily attention, but I dug in and read up and so far I haven't killed it!

I have two now, and two starting from clippings. Would like to try a jade tree if these do well over the next month or so.
