And for those of you who decry it's artificialism, this is better, cuz my father cannot kill it! Seriously, since he went to a Bonsai Con in Oklahoma City WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY back in 93, my father has owned -and killed- 30 of these tiny trees. In desperation, I finally bought him a bonsai tree made of twisted wire and bits of crystal. ((If anyone knows where I can find more, PLEASE let me know!)) To this day, my father has YET to kill that particular bonsai... and has not tried to grow or cultivate any others.
