Species identification help, please

Post  jikobutsu on Sat Nov 26, 2011 4:37 pm

Hi,I recently was given a bonsai but I do not know what it is.I am thinking maybe from the ficus family ?
This is my first bonsai,always had an interest in this art from way back in my teens when I practiced taijiqaun,kung-fu and buddhism.
Bonsai seems to be so much more than just an art.I think over the years,bonsai could teach me a lot about myself.
Anyway here is some photos of my bonsai,I think it is essential that I find out the species so that I may know how to care for it.

Species Identification

Fukien tea, Ehretia microphylla. Forget-me-not family. Grow in a bright, warm, humid location in the winter, outdoors in summer. Needs a little thinning out, plant in a big training pot with coarse bonsai soil. Join the nearest bonsai club.
