Not too big, not too small – Kifu bonsai exhibition BIB

bonsai general - 21 views



Kifu bonsai do not get much attention. They are the trees that are a little bigger than shohin, but shorter than the average size of the bonsai. Usually they are between 8 and 12 inches tall.

The larger size allows a little more character and complexity of shohin trees, but still works on a fairly small scale compared to the bonsai chuhin a little bigger.

This is why it is worth a second look -. Some highlights of recent exposure Bay Island Bonsai
