Our product prices listed online are the same as if you're physically shopping in-person at our bonsai nursery!
House of Bonsai is unable to respond to all requests for exact photos of all bonsai trees. Live bonsai trees are a natural product so the images in our product pages may be slightly different from what you actually receive. We try to get it as close as we can but there may be some variation on bonsai styles and shapes grown and trained within our 5.3 acre bonsai nursery property.
If you require a tree to look just like the photo, please visit our official eBay store and look for one of our numbered trees (such as "Japanese Black Pine #44 Bonsai Tree") where we take photos at multiple angles of the same tree. Otherwise, it is always highly recommended that you visit our bonsai nursery store in-person to select a tree yourself. Sometimes it is difficult to take a good photo that will showcase the beautiful structure in its full glory.
