About dry bonsai

Living bonsai requires a great deal of time, skill and effort, such as watering, replanting, branching, fertilization, and pest control.

On the other hand, dry bonsai is a new style of bonsai that is easy, does not die, and is beautiful without maintenance.

Some bonsai that should live for many years have a long life or die by mistake.

Carefully selected from them, the soil is removed, the whole is dried cleanly, and unnecessary branches and roots are pruned and trimmed to complete.

In addition, we will add another uniquely dried leaf and preserved branches and leaves to add a novel charm to the historical feeling of the original bonsai.

How to care and appreciate

Dry bonsai does not require maintenance. Please do not give water.

You can appreciate the natural curves and beauty of bonsai, including roots, bark, GIN, and SHARI. Since it is dried, there is no problem even if the tip of the branch or the bark of the tree breaks a little or peels off naturally.

Please enjoy changing to a new shape.
