Bonsai Banter Issue # 044 Bonsai Extremes "The huge bonsai, which westerners think are ridiculous, are in proportion to where they are displayed. Proportion is important. China is a large country with large gardens -- so, large bonsai are grown. While, Japan is a small country with small gardens and smaller size bonsai are grown and also displayed indoors, which is not a Chinese tradition."
Why anyone would make a POISON IVY BONSAI is beyond me, but judging by the trunk on this one, someone has put serious time into it. This sweet-looking nasty is from Yorozu Shohin Bonsai Nursery in Japan.
