I decided I wanted to get back into tropicals a little bit. So I'm ordering some seeds of tropical trees to do as bonsai.

Here is a list of the seeds I'm ordering.

Ficus benghalensis (Banyan tree) This is my favorite Ficus but I've never had one before. I just think it looks so cool.
Ficus religiosa (Indian Sacred 9fig Tree)

Cananga odorata (Tropical * Ylang - Ylang * Perfume Tree Seeds)

And more seeds of Eucalyptus Deglupta (rainbow gum) Green Grin!

@adamgreen I just ran across the post today.

Did you plant these seeds? How are they coming along?

I am growing all sorts of things for bonsai as well. Those at this point I am happiest with are some Bauhinias. They will be 2 years old in February.

I have the seed of those two Ficus, but have as yet to plant them. Grumbling

Well I ended up not doing much with the seeds. I forgot where I put them. I dedicate myself to succulents now.
