Tropical Bonsai

I started my Bonsai journey the year my son was born, 2013, sowing a few Jacaranda seeds. I still have 2 healthy trees today. At the time, not knowing anything about bonsai and trees, I thought they would make beautiful bonsai..!! Yeah, right ! I know better now.

Being in a sub tropical climate, we are blessed with a very long growing season (it hardly ever stop really). So most trees grow quickly, and with that comes often longer internodes, long vertical shoots, …

A lot of our trees comes from Brazil here in Brisbane, Jacaranda, Ponciana, Leopard Tree, Tabebuia, Jaboticaba, Coral tree,…. They are stunning, but are definitely very challenging to train as future bonsai !
