    I planted this was to be Bonsai about 35 years ago.

    I was just replanted into a wine barrel.

    When I bought it as a Bonsai it had every thing going for it.

    I managed to buy a huge pottery pot but in the end it had to be replanted and only one way to do it was to smash the old put to get it out.

    I love gardening. Next year I am planning to do some container / dish gardening. I am planning to buy some Venus fly traps as well.

    I tried a Carnivorous tank but it did not work out.

    Thanks for the photos @keithgh , they are pretty sensitive plants, what do you think is the cause of their death?

    Possibly lack of air movement and my knowledge I had them growing outside in a fernery for years in one old wire hanging basket.

    To all

    It would have to be towed out to sea then lifted by cane onto a ship/s to bring home plus have a swimming pool as a tank.

    Oh I forgot to mention that is if the local community would allow you to take it off the island.

    Icethunder that is absolutely fantastic, there is so much detail in her work.

    Any chance of your wife giving us more information about each photo please.
