Portulacaria Afra (5" H)
The Portulacaria Afra is one of the few succulent you can Bonsai. Since it is succulent, it is very hearty and can withstand long periods without watering making them excellent plants for beginners. Javier tells us “I‘ve worked on this tree for a few years and am happy with the semi-cascade shape it has. It's a rare style to get on a tree like this.”
This tree should remain outdoors and watered every day. Bring indoors only when being displayed for short periods. Each tree includes a consultation with Javier, where care and maintenance tips will be discussed and best practices for providing the best conditions for your tree to thrive. Additional consultations and styling sessions could be arranged at a later date.
Local pick up only. Shipping is not available for this product.

Proyectos Tyrone is a conduit for BIPOC-centric projects that promote artisans/designers/humans from marginalized LA regions. Proyectos Tyrone is happy to release it's second project at Cafe Murmurs with artist Javier Ramirez:
Chido-En is the bonsai project of LA-based artist Javier Ramirez. Chido-En offers traditional bonsai services and a hand-picked amount of carefully selected starter and intermediate trees available for purchase. Merging the Mexican slang word for cool (Chido) and the Japanese word for garden (En), Chido–En also explores the mixing of two distinct cultural realms. With Chido-En, Javier weaves together the ancient Japanese art form of bonsai with his native Mexican-American visual language to present something that feels distinct yet respectful of the two cultures.
