    I can see the Bonsai plant is tired because of the two day in transit. I am nurturing my best with indirect sunlight and utmost care. Most of the big leaves fell down. New leaves of hope are sprouting. The pot is very good one with art.

    Came in good packaging. No damages. Placed in sunlight for few hours after receiving. It’s more than a week since I bought it and no issues. Mainly placing it indoor but when possible keeping it out for some sun light and watering it when the soil is dry. There is proper drain facility at the bottom.

    Fantastic quality wise, small leaf Bonsai plant, has a good growth, came in a good packaging and delivered in a nice condition.
    I had ordered a total of three jade Bonsai plants, this Bonsai plant came in a nice ceramic small sized pot, but other two pots came seated in flimsy plastic containers. Go for this one.
