I bought a tree/plant few days ago..
Because Christmas is coming, every shop is selling ofc. small "Christmas trees"... or something which looks like a Christmas tree... Very Happy
Whatever.. I saw one, and I had the feeling that it is some Cryptomeria.. I was not sure, but I bought it... maybe it's something else, but I still think that is some kind of Cryptomeria... hopefully Cryptomeria Japonica 'Yokohama' but maybe Cryptomeria Japonica Vilmoriana Idk.

I will upload some photos... could you help me to figure out if I'm right or wrong, and what is the correct kind of the tree?

Thanks a lot!

Have you tried to identify it with Pantsnap? It's an app on Google Play.

Will not work... I tried some apps, they have cheap algorithm, and can only tell you if it's maple or something with a specific leave shape...
For this plant it would say some pine ore spruce which is totally not correct...

To me, it looks like a variety of Cryptomeria.

Yeah, I also have that feeling, I'm just not sure...
I bought it because I know that Cryptomeria is actually a quite good material for bonsais purposes ... I just don't know the exact kind... :/

Reminds me very much of Chamaecyparis thyoides ... please google some pics.  Iam attaching a photo of a Chamaecyparis thyoides ‘Ericoides’ (that I kept years ago), but not sure of the upload resolution quality.  Other cultivars include Red Star, Top Point & Little Jamie.  HTH.

Wow, this is a nice help! I guess you are right! Thanks a lot!
I see that people try to use it as a bonsai as well, so it's not impossible ... I have to let it grow and survive the winter, and see what shape I can choose in spring... I will repot it for sure then and make some root pruning and shaping... let's see... Wink

Sadly, mine dried out (Los Angeles is a poor grow zone, and I was aware of the challenge). I took some “reasonable” precautions: purchased the trees in winter (so they can adjust to the coming spring & summer; kept the trees on the east side of the house (morning sun only); misted often and rested the pots on the garden bed (plenty of residual evaporation). if i had the space, i would have constructed a cool greenhouse).

i did see one C. thyoides years later but one could tell they struggle in our climate.

Its sad, that you lost yours... :/

btw. I found other species, and it can be that mine is not the red star version but the Chamaecyparis thyoides Top Point or Chamaecyparis thyoides Excellent Point, Idk. there are many versions... and mine is not getting red/rusty on the canopy.. so hmmm it's hard to tell which type it is...
