  • Can bonsai be made from cheap material? These might not be the best examples, but i think they will develop into nice trees. I think bonsai can be intimidating to beginners because of the cost of material and the threat of dying trees. With cheap materials, you can build your skills and practice different techniques without the fear of ruining expensive trees.
    These dwarf youpon hollies were purchased from homedepot for 5.98 (plus tax)

    When u broke the branch I felt ur pain....I use to have a sycamore bonsai and u can't bend the branches unless they are fresh growth. And I never wire a sycamore I use string and weighs to pull the green shouts. Surprisingly u can miniaturize sycamore leaves to about 10mm

    Thank you I’m new to bonsai but not plants and watched a lot on utube you are one of the best, explaining landmarks on trunk getting in there checking out the base, how to approach the canopy. Yes it is intimidating, an scary to some of my house plants as I look at them wonder with scissors in hand. Lol

    these don't do well for wiring unless it has green limbs or they are very small. move slowly over time. give us an update video!

    Nigel always says to worry about the roots before the top, I agree. You should have just done an initial clean up and focus on roots

    Sorry not able to see where you cut and other aspects of the process due to your bulky gloves find something tighter and comfy
