My name is Dan, I'm 27, and relatively new to the world of bonsai, but have taken a headlong dive into it. I started about 6 months ago with the thought of buying my girlfriend a different plant for Valentine's day, end up with a plant for her and a juniper for me, now I have about 20 plants in all different stages of bonsai.
I do have a question for identification for one plant. The original plant I bought for my girlfriend was from a local bonsai dealer, he said the exact species if plant was unknown, but it's a relative of the boabab tree. I attached several images to help
The plant has a fuzzy texture on it, is very drought resistant and retains a lot of water. It roots very easily, it is very fast growing and I swear it has edema when fertilized consistently.
Not sure if any of that means anything, but any help trying to id it would be much appreciated.
Thanks for any help!
