I just thought it'd be fun to start a thread about commonly found house plants that could make bonsai.
After I went out and got a ficus to 'play' bonsai with :p, I kept on reading in here and realized I had a schefflera. And then I found I had a lemon tree as well (ok, maybe it's a grapefruit, but does it really matter?)...
i admit they still have to grow out, but i never thought 'bonsai' when i bought the one or grew the other.
Now I was wondering what you guys might have in your collections, that you didn't expect to be a bonsai when you were first growing it?
Indulge me, because canadian winter is just too bad a time to start working on bonsai - and I am getting bored. :p
I've got willow cuttings growing out from christmas day (why am i not surprised) and hibiscus, some weird apple (that looks like cherries) and lavender growing from seeds, and lastly an air layer on my ficus but except for the willow nothing is actually visibly changing... And before I start fiddling, I thought I'd bug the forum
