Speaking of Bonsai..

Speaking of the bonsai concept in the thread "Aikido as a journey" (I think that's how it goes..)

I've got a fukien tea bonsai that's lost it's leaves and looks fairly dry. And I'll be the first to admit, I thought it was dead and haven't done much more than water it for a while.

It's about 18 months old. Well, older than that, I've had it about 18 months.

I fear the worst, but here are my thoughts. It's got a bit of green under the bark (a slight scratch with the fingernail will reveal that..) but the moss around the base is all but dead.

My house is fairly chilly. Not subtropical warm, not freezing cold, but I do have a green iguana (he's about 18 months old as well..) that's doing great in his nice and warm/humid cage.

Do you think it'd be a good idea to put the bonsai (in it's little pot, not transplanted) into the iguana cage? Would the iggy eat it if it sprouted leaves again. If so, is that bad? I really want it to warm up, think it's spring and sprout so I know it's got live left.

And to be quite honest, it *did* lose it's leaves as fall rounded the corner..

Thoughts? Lesson learned, the tree deserves a bit of respect.
