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.

The portulacaria afra (dwarf jade, elephant jade, spekboom) is native to South Africa where they are part of the African elephant's diet. So it was only fitting to add an elephant to the dwarf jade bonsai forests. Notice the resemblance of the plant's bark to the skin of the elephant. Just like in the wild.
