INDOOR BONSAI TREES
Araucaria cunninghamii  - Hoop Pine (INDOOR BONSAI TREE)

We are very pleased to be offering for the first time the wonderful Hoop Pine, which is of the Araucaria family (the monkey puzzle trees are the most well known of the Araucarias, but this is very different!). These are wonderful slow growing conifers ideally suited to bonsai which form natural 'hoop' trunks with delicate evergreen foliage that weeps down.

Very easy to care for: they require NO DIRECT SUNLIGHT (so keep them in an east facing window, or in the middle of the house away from windows) and KEPT MOIST - if above a radiator then make sure you water on a regular basis.

The photos show some of the actual bonsai on offer, these are approx. 18inches inc. pot in a 9.5inch hexagonal plastic bonsai display pot and have an approx. 8-10inch spread.

Approx. 18inches  inc. pot  59.99 (B)  ( 2 in stock)
