Jade, CRASSULA OVATA bonsai, Before and After

This tree belongs to Trey Hoover. I have had poor luck with indoor bonsai but he seems to have a thriving collection of indoor plants due to his enormous windows. I will post more of this one as it developes.

collected winged elm, ulmus alata bonsai

I collected a few of these in a field. The bark is unbelievable to me. deeply fissured, corky and multi colored. I have no experience with this species but I've read that they are quite hardy.

box elder, acer negundo bonsai

Dont tell me it can't be done. Alright the leaves are big and the growth is less than compact... One good thing about this tree is that it is extremely tough. This is my first attempt at collecting one of these and so far I'm impressed with its vigor.
