Just a Fukien tea

Thought the group might enjoy this.
Fukien Tea, might be able to show as a progression.
For now please just enjoy.

Deep pot as the tree drinks a good deal to keep the foliage.
I chose not to thin out the foliage for the shot.

Here is my ooops shot. Left on the moss protecter as the Barred Antshrike,

this is a really nice one,

they are great trees - small leaves, flowers, fruit sometimes - but I found they are hard to grow out of their comfort region Mad (i guess all trees are hard to grow in the wrong climate) Fxxkin tea trees are just about the only tree i killed off 2 or 3 times in my early bonsai days but its part of learning there is a hard way........and an easy way to go about bonsai Very Happy

great healthy tree

Marcus,

do me a favour, if the Fukien tea comes from Fujian, China, which is a zone 9 to 10, try growing a seedling outdoors from late spring through winter and see if it survives.
Something odd about China, we have a number of plants that grow well as tropicals, but come from zone 9 to 8, a little confusing.

My friend Carl, winters his serissas in a zone 7 outdoors in New Jersey, and I have seen images of Sageretia t. bare branched and covered in snow.

Hello John,

long time no speak to. It's just under 18" [ 48 cm ] tall.
But John you guys have cotoneasters and pyracanthas.......................
Stay well you two.

Yes, i'll give that a go. The ones i killed only died when they were bought inside so i may as well try one outdoors - things do better outside for me haha

Nice fukien tea ThumbsUp , must be very old.

Marcus, My fukien tea are kept mostly outdoors but I do bring them in when temps are forecasted to be freezing or lower. Luckily, it only lasts 2-3 days here in Austin. Very Happy They like high humidity so if you need to keep them indoors longer, I suggest you place them in a transparent bag. Good luck!
