Cute as a kitten and only about as tall, this new mini bonsai is a perfect little conifer in miniature. Examine it closely (you can balance it on the palm of your hand) and note the amazing detail. From the hair-like pine needles to the gnarled texture of the trunk and branches, everything is exact, precise and totally lifelike. Just shrunk to Lilliputian scale. Presented in a genuine bonsai ceramic planter.
