The Steps to Prune the Perfect Jade Bonsai

The succulent jade plant (Crassula ovata) grows wild in its native southern Africa, where it can reach 8 to 9 feet tall and spread about as wide. This gives good advice for pruning...this is a plant material where you want the branches to removed flush to the plant instead of the usual concave cut. This is also another plant where pruning is the main tool for creating your Bonsai.

Portulacaria afra (dwarf jade) bonsai forest started from a garden center plant. 6 years in training. The first picture shows how I started the group using rocks to keep the trunks upright. Then for the next few years I constantly pruned to achieve the overall shape. The last picture shows the group in April 2014. Still nowhere near complete but that's the best part of bonsai. It's never finished.
