One of the best portulacaria I’ve seen in a private collection in a long time. Grown by Old Florida Bonsai, developed by Trudy, I got to work on it yesterday at the Bonsai Society of Brevard’s meeting where I led a byot workshop. Thanks to you all for the great and challenging trees. #bonsai #bonsaitree #bonsaiart #succulentsofinstagram #spekboom #spekboombonsai

Well, I guess a tree in a style I call “drunken literati” will have a tendency to fall over. Good thing it’s a portulacaria……I wonder how long it’s been without soil? And considering it’s a Bellota pot, I guess I have to learn Kinstugi now too #bonsaiart #spekboom #bonsaitree #bonsai #succulentsofinstagram (at Adam’s Art and Bonsai Studio and Nursery)

Spread out those roots! On a portulacaria I like to go in dry and really comb them out laterally. No water for about two weeks. With John and Julie in Toledo #bonsaiart #spekboom #bonsaitree #bonsai #succulentsofinstagram (at Ohio)

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)
