One of the giant portulacaria afra in the James J. Smith Gallery that the Central Florida Bonsai Club helped repot on a field trip down to Heathcote Botanical Gardens in Ft. Pierce, Fl. That’s Abner and Mark for scale. Don’t tell my wife, but there’s a pic on so since camera with me picking up this tree by myself. #spekboom #bonsaiart #bonsaitree #bonsai @heathcotebg (at Heathcote Botanical Gardens)

Saying goodnight to The Nook. If you look closely (beyond the leaves on the floor and all the wire, tools, pottery etc) you can see that portulacaria I repotted a few days ago, hanging out under the roof, being protected from the lethal effects of oxidane damage. #bonsaiart #bonsaitree #spekboom #bonsai #bonsaigarden

Sometimes you gotta take the time to cut back to two leaves on every branch and fix some structure. Portulacaria afra I’ve been training for about 15 years, live oak style. #bonsaiart #spekboom #bonsaitree #succulentsofinstagram #bonsai #bonsailife (at Adam’s Art and Bonsai Studio and Nursery)

Portulacaria afra with a new pot (an early Taiko Earth container). The tree was purchased about 2 years ago from a friend (Donnie) who was raising money for a trip to Israel. Changed the front and moved some branches around #bonsaitree #bonsaiart #bonsai #succulentsofinstagram #spekboom (at Adam’s Art and Bonsai Studio and Nursery)

First structural styling of that portulacaria afra from earlier. The trunk is about as thick as a 750 ml bottle of wine. #bonsai #bonsaiart #bonsaitree #spekboom #succulentsofinstagram (at Adam’s Art and Bonsai Studio and Nursery)

My work today (after a housecall to a client, a CFBC newsletter and a blogpost that is). A big portulacaria I got last year from Bougie Joe at the Bsf convention. About time I get to work on it, right? #bonsai #bonsaiart #spekboom #dwarfjade #succulentsofinstagram (at Adam’s Art and Bonsai Studio and Nursery)
