Got it as a garf bonsai but doesn't really look like it. The purple is not very deep and polyp is not very green. Is this a bonsai? I have it in low part around 180, is it because of lower par?

Seems like that could pass for bonsai although it does seem a little light colored.
The color my just be the photo

The color is light purple just like the photo. It's not deep purple with contrasting green at all. I do have a valida that looks nothing like this so at least it's not a valida lol.

I would venture to guess it is a Bonsai. My first piece was in lower light and it didnt have the deep purple which my current one does and that one is getting blasted.

The stubby growth and tiny polyps are give a away.
