In 2004 I was invited to Puerto Rico. I was amazed with a plant with small leaves that became beautiful bonsai with very compact ramification. They said that the name was Nia or Neea buxifolia. I was lucky that I got a small neea during my trip around the island.
I made initial cut on the plant
The tree grew very quickly in Indonesia. It seemed that the high humidity and the tropical condition in my garded suited so much with the plant.
In 2006 I took the picture of the plant.
In 2007 I took an other picture
And finally in 2008, here was the result of the tree.
The second neea I got was given by Jose Luis Rodriguez Macias. It was bigger than the first one. You can see the progress of the material changing into a bonsai. Please enjoy.
