A Portulacaria afra I just repotted. It was damaged in hurricane Irma last year and broke out the top (second pic). I got it as stock originally from Jim Smith’s nursery years ago. No trimming as the tree needs all the leaves for root growth and transpiration purposes. I put it into a mica pot to get it back into a growing phase, those leaves are too small for my taste. And yes, in this mix you do see some organic fir bark. Ports do have mycorrhizae that help them and organic helps the fungus thrive. #mybonsaiworld #floridabonsai #bonsai #portulacariaafra #succulents (at Adam’s Art and Bonsai Studio and Nursery)
