Pre-Bonsai Brazilian Rain Tree
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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will I Kill It?
Maybe, but probably not. Kids and pets are much harder to keep alive, so if you’ve ever had one of them you’ll be fine. Most Bonsai we sell need little more than sun & water.
Are there specific Care Guides available for each species?
Yes there are, and you can find them HERE
When will my Bonsai ship?
We ship daily. However, trees to the west coast ship on Mondays or Tuesday to avoid being held in-transit over the weekend. Shipments of Trees are released on Mondays and Tuesdays only to avoid being held in-transit over weekends.
Can I track my Bonsai?
Yes, once your Bonsai ships you’ll get an email with a FedEx tracking number that you’ll be able to use on their website to see exactly when your tree will arrive.
Do I need anything else to start an adventure in Bonsai?
Your Bonsai will arrive potted in a ceramic Bonsai pot that will compliment your tree and right off the bat that’s all you’ll need. If you’re looking for the basics beyond that, a Starter Kit and Humidity Tray are an excellent place to start.
