What type of bonsai tree do I have?

Postby aeker22 » September 24th, 2013, 2:31 am

I bought a bonsai tree and i read that different species need different care. I have no idea what type mine is or if its hard to care for. I've had it for two days. i think its some sort of elm. I doubt that its a chinese elm because all the images I've seen of them have thicker trunks or longer leaves.

its dark green with small leaves that are football shaped with teeth, like elms.

here are some pics of the tree and leaves:

Yeah, that looks like an elm. Specifically a cedar elm.
