CASCADE CORK BARK JADE. Length: The length of the tree from the tip of the cascade to the apex is 20. Trunk Diameter: The trunk Dia with deadwood, is approximately 1.5. Nebari (Root Spread): Tree has many exposed Roots 3.5. Canopy: The canopy is 11 inches wide. This rare Cascading Cork Bark Jade. Is a mutated “Cork” variety of Jade that is seldom found. The rare plant first appeared in a Florida nursery in the early 1960s. At first it was thought to have some sort of fungal disease. A heavy application of pesticide nearly eradicated the problem by killing most of the plants. Fortunately, one survived before the nursery went out of business and the plant made its way to the West Coast. This tree was grown here in Southern California by a local artist who accidentally discovered this mutation many years ago and has been growing them ever since. The Cork on the plant usually appears after the plant has reached the ages of 5-8 years old. As seen in the photographs, this trees Cork appearance is well established and will become even more dramatic as it matures. This beautiful cascade Cork Jade looks like a very old tree because it is. Along with being one of the most resilient of succulents and having the appearance of a miniature jade plant, this Portulaca relative is very well suited for bonsai and the Cork Bark is like icing on the cake with its added attraction of the fissured, corky bark. Bright light and lean conditions (Little water) seem to promote the best fissured bark but also considerable patience. Overall, the composition of this Jade is of. An aged tree that has weathered the winds and snow of many winters by clinging to the cliff face with its roots deeply embedded in the crevices of a rock. The sense of rearing vigorously in the face of natures onslaught is typical of a tree on a cliff; the way the trunk rises from its powerful roots then immediately surrenders to earths gravity, vividly conveys a sense of natures harshness and of the trees determination to survive. As with traditional bonsai, these specimens can become horticultural heirlooms that can be passed down from generation to generation. Complementing the impressive Cascade Cork trunk as well as the entire composition is a glazed olive-colored deep cascade ceramic bonsai pot (5x 7.5). On a side note. Ive noticed that not too many sellers talk or write about things that should be done after you receive your tree so I will give you my two cents worth. When you receive your tree unpack it carefully. Cut the tape and plastic wrap from the pot and the branches if applicable. Secondly give the tree a good watering and then put the tree in a partially shaded spot for a few days to allow it to adjust. After several days of adjustment your new bonsai can be reintroduced to bright sun. Good luck and if you have any questions feel free to fire off a message.
