At Silk Tree Nurseries, we try to
produce and provide some unique bonsai trees that you may not
find at any other nursery, as well as a range of more common
varieties. We have both outdoor bonsai trees and indoor bonsai
trees. Please note that some of our less hardy bonsai trees are
not kept at the nursery site.

INDOOR BONSAI TREES
- 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
