Very nice. My first plant love was coleus. This is a great idea. Do you start out with a regular coleus cutting?

What a great treat for the eyes.
I like to grow Inky Toes in containers and in the garden.
Your bonsai are clever and really shaped nice.

David, I have a few bonsai; a fig, a boxwood, a ginko biloba, a couple of pine type trees. But I just love the color of the inky fingers, and you have really achieved a nice form with it. Not to mention coleus can survive indoors, that's a plus. I will be looking for inky fingers locally now. I did notice there is a nursery online that has a lot of different coleus. Thanks for posting pictures.
