I was just wondering how many species of tropical/non-deciduous bonsai trees there are available, especially since I want to experiment, and I live in South Florida.
Right now I do like my Ficus microcarpa named Joe. It works well indoors, is hardy, grows quick. I'm also attempting turn a small palm sappling I found into a bonsai tree. I'm not sure of the species, so I have to care for it until it grows large enough to identify, then I'll see how it goes from there.
I don't have fertilizer for acidic loving trees though, just for common ones. Any suggestions on tropical trees that flower and give fruit are good too, including any personal experience with handling them.
