A friend of mine just gave me a bonsai plant and I am looking forward to learning this hobby. But first I need to learn how to make my way through this forum stuff. I'm not even sure if this is going to post properly or not. But I will find out shortly. If this works then I will show you a picture of the tree I have been given.
You got it to work properly. I would suggest you attend an Atlanta Bonsai Society meeting. We have a workshop with guest teacher, Ted Matson, on February 20 (member cost is $60 for either a morning or afternoon session) or you could attend the Sunday meeting and ask members their advice. We do hope you will consider joining. Annual dues are $35 and we are just starting up activities for the growing season, so you're here at just the right time!
