    Looks like jade (Crassula ovata). I think leaves a little yellow like that are usually signs of overwatering.

That is some sort of jade or similar succulent. Not exactly a bonsai as they stay that size naturally, but it's still a beautiful example of a bonsai presentation for a jade.

  • I'm curious: why do you say this is not a bonsai? When I search jade bonsai on Google Images, I see similar looking plants.

  • Because bonsai are trees, they are not tree like.

  • So are all jades I see when I search "jade bonsai" not actually bonsai? Technically any bonsai doesn't meet the qualifications of a tree

  • In the classical sense they are not true bonsai
