Solanum species

Solanum is rarely used for bonsai,but have a little stump a friend dragged out of his garden mostly with a hatched and a maul that I stuck in some bonsai soil and is happy as a clam! In fact other day surprised me with a yellow berry!

Fun! I think it’s worth a try. Older specimens have nice trunks and with enough fertilizer and sunshine you can turn them green no problem. Berry is a nice bonus :slight_smile:

Jonas…thanks…will bring it to on of the workshops when time to repot…i will also try to take a pic of the gnarly deadwood trunk and post it…i have had solanums in my yard for years and have never seen any berries…
