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)

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)

Two different types of kalanchoe blooming in the garden. If we get a freeze in Orlando, they usually get damaged and I never get to see the flowers. #mybonsaiworld #succulentsofinstagram #kalanchoe #motherofmillions (at Adam’s Art and Bonsai Studio and Nursery)
