The Brazilian Rain tree, or Pithecellobium torta, is an unusual tree that makes for an excellent bonsai.
Brazilian Rain trees have many interesting qualities, FOR example - the leaves fold up at night and the bark exfoliates to expose an age-revealing creamy under-bark.
The trunk and branches will flatten and undulate, producing a muscular look. They're also strong, drought tolerant and vigorous. Overall the Brazilian Rain is an excellent choice for indoor bonsai and for beginners. These versatile bonsai can be grown inside, but prefer to be out for the summer (who wouldn’t?).
Be aware that each late winter/early spring they will drop leaves, but fear not, they grow back almost immediately. Also, I took these pictures with the Flash On - that was a mistake, but hopefully you can see the trees trunk line and branches.
This Bonsai is 10" tall, measured from the table to the top of tree. The spread is 8"
It ships in a 6.5" Ceramic pot

The tree you see is the tree you'll receive.
IMPORTANT: Although Brazilian Rain trees are one of the most popular, it's important to know that they will likely lose "most" (90% of) their leaves during shipping. That is normal for these trees and they bounce back very quickly - usually within a week you'll start seeing new growth, and in a couple weeks, it should look full again.
