If the task of caring for a sensitive and delicate bonsai tree proves to be too much of a challenge or a commitment, there are also plastic bonsai trees like Grid-Bonsai that can be customized to add beauty to an indoor space. The plastic trees are shaped with full branches and leaves that can be trimmed with a pair of scissors to create an artful design and a totally different look than before.
Grid-Bonsai is launching as part of a Japanese crowdfunding project that shares a total of seven designs made with white nylon resin. While Type D boasts a low-lying design that hugs the ground, Type F appears to "grow" vertically. All of the plastic bonsai designs start off with "branches" and "leaves" in rectangular configurations.
