Okay, you might think it’s a tad crazy that I’m reviewing a bonsai tree. Maybe it is a little strange for me – the possessor of the brownest blackest of all thumbs.
I love plants. Really I do. But, their lifespan tends to be very short at my house. Ahem.
Since receiving my fabulous Golden Gate Ficus Bonsai from ProFlowers, I’ve remembered to water it faithfully and it’s looking quite healthy! I’m really quite impressed with my bonsai-growing capabilities.
Golden Gate Ficus Bonsai
Did you know that the word ‘bonsai’ means “little trees in pots?” I mean, seriously. So clever!
The indoor bonsai originated in Asia, but has been adopted into Western culture as a popular art form. I love the beauty, life and interest that the bonsai brings into my home.
As I mentioned, taking care of a bonsai is relatively easy. Before I agreed to do this review and giveaway, I carefully researched how much “work” (i.e. brain power to remember to water the tree) was involved. I water my bonsai every two or three days and I have it sitting on a plate with water in it so that the soil doesn’t dry out.
This mini tree is workin’ for me! I can’t believe that it’s looking so good!
ProFlowers has generously agreed to give away a Golden Gate Ficus Bonsai tree to one of you!
GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED!
Congratulations to Ashley from A Young Wife’s Tale! 🙂 Your Bonsai will be on it’s way soon!
