My tree is nice, but not tyled to look like the one in the online photo. Still very good and I do recomend Brussel's for bonsai. I otdered through Amazon and I was told thst it was sold by and would be shipped from Amazon; however, it came in a Brussel's box from Brussel's location. I think that with Amazon's super saving shipping, it cost less than if had I ordered ditectly from the grower.
UpDate Nov., 2011: I recently received my third Brussel's Dwarf Jade bonsai; It is very nice looking and also healthy,was packed beautifully, and arived safely. I want to caution new owners to avoid over-watering as this plant will drop its leaves if you do. I bought my first one a few years ago and the tag said to water very three days - that was too much; my second one (above) was bought in late Spring, 2011 and the tag said to water every 5 to 7 days- I did five - still too much. My newest (third) one had a tag that said to water every 3 to 5 days. I have found that this may be too often at least for this tree kept indoors all the time. So, I am watering my new one only when the soil is almost dry, checking the soil moisture with a toothpick first to make sure it is ready for water. Amd, So Far, So Good! I am also giving it full sun when possible and fluorescent light at other times for a total of 12 hours of good light a day. It is said these plants are easy to care for, but you must care enough to give them enough light and the right amount of water.
Re Packaging: My first purchase from Brussel's, a few years ago, had me cussing them for their packaging: those horrible white peanuts everywhere! The plant arrived safely but I HATE those things! I was delighted to discover that they have changed the packaging to an ingenious double box system that is very effective.
I recommend Brussel's wholeheartedly.
I was surprised to learn that it costs less to purchase the plants via Amazon than from the Brussel's site.
I added (2 tablespoons) Azomite to the soil and now new leaves are all over the place!!
Had some problems with watering, was afraid to over water. Lost about 20% of leaves in the first 2 weeks (not noticeable) as the plant arrived very full.
I could see more leaves dying, It was time to change tactics. I used my moisture meter and made 3 deep holes so I could gauge the root moisture. It was bone dry! So I doused it in the sink. Got it good and wet. Water spurting out all the holes! Moved the plant to a 8 hour indirect light window and presto!! Perfect, happy plant. Checked with probe today (used small openings) and it's a 5. So I think I'll water deeply once a week or when probe goes to 2 or 3. I bought my probe here at Amazon. It's a Rapitest and well worth the investment.

The tree so far has been great, it came in green though it looked like it could have used some water which wasn't surprising but overall great tree!Published 11 days ago by Jake
My lil tree is very cute though a little sparse. I've had it about a week so far and the leaves look a little less waxy and have drooped a bit, but I'm hoping they will spring... Read morePublished 3 months ago by Melissa

I was really surprised at how many leaves it lost. I'm hoping it pulls through. I've followed the directions, but it's looking grim.Published 6 months ago by Julia Walthall
As some other reviewers have complained my plant did lose many of its leaves upon arrival, i am guessing due to the stress of shipping. Read morePublished 8 months ago by el duderino
