What is Shohin bonsai? "Shohin" is the Japanese word for "a tiny thing." The basic rules of Shohin bonsai suggest that it should not be higher than approximately 25cm (that's 10 inches) when measured from the rim of the pot to the top of the tree. Most experts believe that you must be able to hold the Shohin bonsai in one hand and it must express the beauty of a large tree in miniature. The exact measure of the height of the tree is then less important. Also known as Mexicana Ficus. Elongated, light green leaves have a striking resemblance to the popular Weeping Willow tree. This tree does particularly well indoors in low, moderate or higher lighting conditions.
