A mature bonsai forest is very rare. These special trees are renowned for their miniature splendor and are said to symbolize harmony, peace, and tranquility in nature. Seeing a full bonsai forest is so extraordinary because of the tremendous time and care needed to bring them to maturity.
This particular bonsai forest sold in Japan for ¥1,800,000 ($16,000).
Bonsai trees take an average of 20-30 years to reach maturity. In other words, if you are interested in starting this hobby, you have to play the long game. However, if you don’t want to wait around for decades, you can buy this 40-year-old bonsai tree directly off of Amazon for a cool $1,800. Or you can buy a starter kit for $30.
