Hey, my name is Will and this is my first post and first few days trying out bonsai. I was inspired by BigVine's thread so I went out today and got myself some tropicals to see if i can learn something about plants and bonsai over the winter
So after some reading I made myself a 70/30 approximate mix of pumice and bark, which drains pretty well but doesnt dry out instantly (good for tropicals yeah?) and got myself some schefflera arboricola and portulacara afra from the local home depot. I've planted them in some shallow containers and placed one group in a place that receives a good amount of direct light and another in a spot that recieves a lot of indirect....gonna see which they like more.
any comments, tips, whatever, would be appreciated. thanks guys!
