Pre-bonsai

What is a pre-bonsai?

A pre-bonsai is any kind of material that can be turned into a bonsai.

The pre-bonsais are small trees with as a particularity, that they may become beautiful bonsai, in exchange of a little work and care. A certain curve in the trunk and some fine branches that can be moulded enable the hardest task for an amateur: The initial design.

Obtaining a bonsai is the result of several years of work (we will need a minimum of four years to get a “tree” and a dozen years to see a bonsai) and the application of techniques such as pruning, re-potting, wiring, etc.

Many amateurs and bonsai professionals prefer to follow the evolution of the plant, model it to their taste and give it a personality.

This is why Mistral Bonsai has developed a new range of pre-bonsais: trees from a great variety of species, prepared from seedlings to get a good nebari (low and wide part of the trunk), fine roots close to the trunk with multiple design possibilities.

They are sold in pots, made of a plastic specially designed to achieve excellent results with very little effort.

in our online store you will find the best selection of pre-bonsai. Furthermore, with our products, you will have all the information related to pre-bonsais to assist you in creating your own trees and in different care and maintenance.
