The 10 Best Japanese Bonsai Pots

Japan is a unique destination if you are wanting to see various beautiful ceramic products, with a rich culture attached to each piece of artifact. In Japan, there is a very rich culture to the cultivation of plants, and this involves cultivating plants indoors. There are trees and there are trees, and a pot will only remain a pot, but its uniqueness will only be borne out of its use.

Bonsai is a popular trend in the whole of Japan, with its interpretation as tray planting. Bonsai is a special type of art that if you don’t have it as a Japanese, your origin should be questioned. This form of art is quite popular, and it simply involves cultivation techniques that provide small trees in containers and pots that imitate the form and habit of a full grown tree – more like a miniature tree.

The tree and the pot are two different things, but the combination of these two entities is what becomes a bonsai. The pot that serves as the container of this tree is what is called the bonsai pot. Actually, it’s not that random pots just become bonsai pots, there are certain requirements that are to be met. If you don’t want your trees to die of too much water, your bonsai pot must have drainage holes, and also wiring holes that serve as ports for the attachment of the tree to the pot.

Though the really classic pot you would want to have is that made of ceramics; if your purse can't bear that, there are several other types you can always choose from, which include concrete, plastics, and metals.

In this post, we will be running down a list of really cool types of bonsai pots you can get. Grab your cup of coffee and read on.
