I kept my Chinese Elm for a while after it died, and told myself it was a "winter landscape".  It may have even sprouted some tinsel over Christmas.  That's it - stick some mini fairy lights on it.  That'll look pucka.

Perfect - wear something pink  then he'll think you're the fairy, which will give him the perfect excuse to shove his prize possession where the sun don't shine.

It's now more of a bonsai twig than a bonsai tree

It's two years since mine died and it's still sitting on a shelf in the kitchen
The cactus that I've had about the same length of time is still looking good, despite being watered about twice in 2 1/2 years. 
I also like spider plants, as they're pretty hard to kill.

I also have a 'winter landscape' bonsai guiltily lurking in the shad so am very glad to find I am not the only heartless Bonsai killer out there.

Mind you, the four ex-cacti and the ex-Aloe Vera plant that preceeded it should have told me I was not any good at this plant stuff....

If it makes you feel any better i was left in charge of a neighbours plants a few years ago.  I kept them all well watered and they all looked really healthy the day before they were due to return.  It was just a shame i  failed to notice some of them were silk.  When they came back there was a puddle of water  on top of their piano..................
