    New

    I'm new here. I'm new to CP's. I'm new to owning plants in general. I have a Chinese elm bonsai and just a month or so ago received a VFT. I'm assuming it's a typical, but I really cannot know for sure, as I do not know enough about them and what all the different types/mutations look like. I'm here to learn more about them and such. I wish I had looked at this forum when I first received it. I'm guilty of almost killing her due to using tap water and exposing her to other less than ideal conditions. I would like to think it won't happen again. Anyway, 'ello.
    I like plants.

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.


    Who needs speelcheck?

    Welcome! Did you train the bonsai yourself? Bonsai trees are very fascinating.
