    Despite what's indicated on this site I doubt you'd have success with any
    species of Eucalyptus owing to their huge roots system and need for
    full sun. You might succeed if you kept it outdoors in Summer and over-Wintered
    it in a greenhouse. Even if successful I doubt the bark would look like trees grown
    in the ground.

    Wow, I'd never imagined such a beautiful tree ! No wonder you want to make it into bonsai. Thanks for the pics.
