So, I successfully created 3 bonsai trees and I've uploaded pics of two of them. The third one is somewhat sorry looking so I'll hold of photographing it until I see if it survives. So, here you go:
Bonsai Tree #1:
Bonsai Tree #2
I feel productive and hopefully the greenery will liven up the house a bit. Granted this is assuming that my luck with thise things continues. So far I've made 4 bonsai trees which have all died after a year or two when I had to move. Of course now the goal would be to keep them alive for a year or two until I move and then have them survive the move. Now that would be an accomplishment :).
