    Probably one of those guys who gets joy hacking up baby carrots.

    For real though bonsai is cool at any age.

    Ok found a few. One from Karate Kid I, another from Karate Kid III, and even a reference to the Bonsai in the new Netflix Cobra Kai.

    I just saw one at the local nursery this morning when I stopped by to look for some lava rock. They wanted $200 for one that size. Looks great!

    Thanks. They can be pricey. This was a $30 seedling just a few years ago.
