Yes, it's a real plant - just skillfully crafted and preserved to look like the real thing. Perfect for those of us who do not have the talent (or patience!) to grow our own. Each one is truly a peaceful work of art.
Bonsai is a Japanese art form using a miniature tree grown in containers. The ultimate goal of bonsai is to create a representation of nature. This is skillfully done with knowledge and creativity.
Created from natural juniper and grape wood, the Monterey Bonsai appears to have taken many years of attentive nurturing and manicuring. Each live juniper is manicured to maturity and then preserved without harsh chemicals. It takes real artisan hand work to create the perfect bonsai canopy.
The best part? Now that they have been preserved, they will stay this way forever - without any maintenance or watering!
Each Monterey Bonsai will be slightly unique in actual design, shape, and colours because no two pieces of wood or preserved juniper canopy are ever exactly the same. Each component is hand selected for the ultimate bonsai shape.
The Single Monterey Bonsai measures 12"-14" tall and 12"-14" wide. The black ceramic pot is 8" in diameter and 2" tall. The ground cover is real gravel and mood moss and all components are permanently mounted in the ceramic planter.
