Prebonsai of Loricato Pine "Compact Gem" (Pinus Heldreichii var. Compact Gem), in round cultivation pot.
Vase dimensions: diam. 22 x h. 17cm.
The plant alone is about 35 cm tall.
The pre-bonsai of Pino Loricato originates in the mountainous areas of south-eastern Europe and is in fact widely used in Japan for the cultivation of bonsai.
A curiosity is its name also called "Snakeskin Pine" as the bark resembles the skin of a snake.
The Compact Gem variety was introduced by an English nursery, and is a compact needle variety, as the word itself indicates, which makes it a very interesting variety for bonsai work.
This pre-bonsai allows you to already have a good starting point for growing a pine, thanks to branches that are developed enough but still flexible to be able to be spun and bent to your liking.
The prebonsai or yamadori is the ideal plant for true amateurs, for those who want to work, transform and cultivate a plant until it becomes a real bonsai.
Each pre-bonsai is a unique piece with unique characteristics and may already have some work steps completed such as repotting, or the first spinning or even just pruning, but it has never moved on to the finished bonsai phase.
If, however, you want a bonsai already set up, all you have to do is view the section MEDITERRANEAN BONSAI OR JAPANESE
