Pictures please?

I have a few fukien tea trees (mallsais) and they are all doing very well these days.

I'm crossing my fingers my local walmart will have more mallsais one day. I only ever saw them carry some once.

I think watering is key. Don't over or under water. Use the meat skewer. I have mine in the standard 1/3 Turface, 1/3 lava and 1/3 composted pine bark mix. It must be protected from cold. some shade, mine has been in the greenhouse with a 60% screen since Thanksgiving, but when it is outdoors it gets afternoon shade. (It will stay in the greenhouse this week since we are predicted to get 41 degrees this week. But, hopefully next week it will be out.
The Wal Mart pot and soil will probably kill it, you should repot ASAP and keep protected.

Fukien (sic) Tea Bonsai

If they were going to make a bonsai species in the Boraginaceae (forget-me-not family), why couldn't they at least give it blue flowers? Then I might try one again. flower
