  1. I am a student of horticulture and I recently have taken an interest to bonsai. I want to try all kinds. I just dug up some Nadina from my yard and planted it in a small bonsai like pot. I added moss from the yard as well. I hope it lives. It’s so beautiful.

  2. Dear Robin,
    Interested to hear about your bonsai experiences. How is your Nadina doing?
    All the best, Dr Carla
