    Hello,
    I recently bought a bonsai at Home Depot, but it was unlabeled. I would very much appreciate some help identifying it (my web search hasn't turned up anything conclusive). I've attached a picture -- the "care" tag was from another nearby bonsai (different kind).

    Thanks!

    Your plant needs pruning and tlc. You have to do something to it to have some semblance of a bonsai. I guess there are so many bonsai sites where you can get some help in pruning, shaping and potting. First, do something to make it healthy.

    Hi Everlasting,
    Can you recommend a good source for the proper care of the Chinese Elm? Do you know what needs to be done immediately -- the leaves are falling off?
