      Yeah but I have to water it daily and it gets to 110 degrees in Bakersfield I’ll need a drip irrigation system of some sort to keep it alive. Maybe I’ll drop by Ross today to see if there any type of plastic plants I can get and put it on the wall.

      I’m a lazy gardener and koi keeper

      If it does not get cold there I would get a couple of large jade plants they are succulents that could resemble a Bonsai.

      Spend $20 on koi treats, training them to periodically splash the plants...

      Thank you so much for your generous offer Orlando and your garden looks beautiful. I was so lucky to have found a bargain from Ross today and purchased 3 artificial bonsai $7 each. I’ll post a clip up as soon as I’m done uploading it to YouTube cheers.

      Can I see your pond. Thanks

      Here's a few on Amazon. Some of them they look the same, but they have different heights. We have a store here called "at home" that sells a lot of artificial plants, there's one in Foothill Ranch, CA. I've bought a few inexpensive bonsai from there.

      Qvc sells some artificial plants are usually in store, but some can be used outdoors. The nice thing about Qvc, is they break up the payments over 3 to 5 payments so it makes it easier. Plus, if you take out a credit card with them you get a $40 credit on your first purchase.
