ah well i guess my inexperience is obvious
i have planted one of the seeds after nicking it and soaking it over night.
I was going to plant another today but Hurricane katrina screwed me up (im in alabama).
Anyway I also purchased a buxus harlandii from home depot and pruned that. Hopefully by the time my baobabs are a bit older i will be more experienced.
At this point I really don't worry so much about making a perfect bonsai at this stage. I most likely will go with informal upright if i understand what that is, will research a bit more.
As far as training in the first year, how far should i let it go before pruning? i understand they need to get started.
