This is literally the 2nd pre-bonsai material I ever bought back in 08, back when the passion was flying and the knowledge was.... Yah.. :)
I didn't even realize quite at the time that I'd picked out a tropical species. It almost didn't make it's first winter as I debated bringing it inside or not.. Finally I did and it happily survived, now getting routine escapes inside from October to March.
The species.. Well I have looked around and I think I've identified it once or twice, but never actually put a pic of it and the species in a blog post to help me remember.. Maybe now with Google+ someone can help me out in the community.. :)
I wired the branches this spring, and will be taking them off in Fall when it comes inside. will continue to wind the ranches down to give it this current 'drooping' effect. Normally, the branches all grow 'up' so this in itself is a bit of a test and possibly a strain on the tree. Will see how things go, my wife likes it at least.. :)
