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

Sally Molsick’s very tree-like portulacaria afra. We gave it a quick trim at today’s studygroup. One of her oldest trees, she just repotted it into this Japanese pot and her goal is to show it again at the next BSF convention . #bonsai #bonsaiart #dwarfjadebonsai #succulentsofinstagram

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)
