hello i live in Kansas (zone 6).
at my last house i had a backyard/urban orchard of apples, pears, plum, peach, and apricot trees as well as a vegetable garden. but i've recently (5 months ago) moved and so i have to start all over!
however, my new house has a warm greenhouse! so that hapily opens the door to growing plants that otherwise couldnt survive in my cold Kansas climate. very excited to try to do so and also to start a new orchard and garden up outdoors.
i am also an amateur bonsai cultivator (3 plants) for the past 2 years.

Greetings & welcome to the Cloudforest, Taegan!

Jaboticaba makes for an attractive bonsai specimen. Or, you can have it in your greenhouse and wait many years for it bear fruit, depending on age.

Welcome to the Cloudforest,Taegan. We will all gladly help you re-populate your new backyard with fruit trees! And your greenhouse too. There are lots of plants that will do well there.

How big is your greenhouse?

I would love to see some Bonzai photos of a Jaboticaba, that would look really incredible.

There's one for sale on FreshTopiary right now for $63, not cheap, but looks cool!



I had to use some serious restraint to not buy it myself. :)
