When we think of a traditional bonsai and what it should look like, the image that typically springs to mind is a that of a Juniper bonsai. Bonsai symbolize peace, harmony and balance. It shows the tenacious fight of a tree against elements to create a true miniature replica of what we admire in nature. A bonsai is symbolic of the minimalist approach of Zen Buddhism and teaches us to remove clutter from our lives. All of this is the reason why our impressive, trouble-free evergreen is an excellent gift for those who appreciate nature and bonsai culture.
Note: Purchasing a humidity/drip tray is strongly recommended along with the purchase of your bonsai. They help to protect the surface(s) the bonsai is placed on and your bonsai's health.
