No need to worry about watering or maintenance; once The Bonsai is shaped to your likes, it will stay that way as time has stopped. The essence of the world of bonsai is captured in these miniature scale model series by using various modern scaled model technology. In case of pine bonsai, coconut's fibers are taken apart to make the pine's needle leaf and adhere tiny chips on the trunk to produce the proper appearance. Pod of each bonsai is baked in a kiln as a real-life pod would be. Delicate procedure in every step is the key to making outstanding bonsai. The Bonsai is 1/12 scale, the international standard scale for doll house.
