Dwarf Jade Bonsai
This succulent native to South Africa is not only attractive but it is also ridiculously easy to care for. If you travel a lot but would still like to enjoy the benefits of an indoor tree, this is the bonsai for you. Even if any plant you touch seems to die, Jade will keep on ticking. Because the plump leaves are able to store water, this species needs minimal watering, making it ideal for those who tend to forget to water their plants, or simply don’t have time to devote to intensive daily maintenance.
The smooth, reddish trunk is visually interesting and the quick-growing foliage may be trimmed in a simple upright style or guided into a more dramatic shape like cascade or slanting. For more experienced enthusiasts, the roots will take to root-over-rock. Forgiving, low-maintenance, beautiful – Jade is the perfect beginner bonsai.
Pot: Ceramic Pot
Height: Approximately 10" – 15”

Overall Rating Quality ValueMy trees are big and beautiful on three sides; however one side looks light deprived...I can live with it. DB does a very good job. Have pretexting from them and am getting ready to put another order in... I will work with no one else.

Overall Rating Quality ValueOrdered this tree as a present and had it shipped to Oregon. I was concerned that it would be dead or have problems because it took six days to get to Portland from Dallas via FedEx ground. Everything turned out great. Was told that it was packaged very well and there were no problems. Definitely would buy from them again!
