Brazilian Raintree in a 9" Pot
The Brazilian Rain tree, or Pithecellobium torta, is an unusual tree that makes for an excellent bonsai. This one also flowers, but it's not what you'd expect. That white puff you see, that's the flower. Cool, but not colorful.
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.
About the Tree:
- Trunk: 1"
- Height: 18"

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.
