FOUR CURRENT SIZES:
 
     1.     4LL8 LIVING LOVABLES  in 5'X3"X2" rectangle plastic pots:  $59.95 + shipping ("4LL8-S Sumo,"  "4LL8-R Roots,"  and "4LL8-D Dragon" stylings)  This premium small bonsai are 2-3 years older and heavier than the smaller younger prepared bonsai stock used in the Introductory Workshop Package
 
     2.      7RLS8 (LIVING SCULPTURE) in 7 3/4" x 5 1/2"  2 1/2" rectangular pots:  $89.95 + shipping;  ("7RLS8-S Sumo,"  "7RLS8-R Roots,"  and "7RLS8-D Dragon" stylings).  This new size is slightly smaller than our former 8LS8 round pot items.
 
     3.      9RLS8 (LARGER LIVING SCULPTURE) in 8.5"x6"x2.5" rectangular pots:  $179.95 + shipping;  ("9RLS8-S Sumo,"  "9RLS8-R Roots,"  and "9RLS8-D Dragon" stylings).  This new size is slightly larger than our former 8LS8 round pot items but the trees are much heavier and developed and amongst the favorite of the visitors to the Fuku-Bonsai Cultural Center.  As time permits, we are potting these into 12"diameter x 1.25" shallow saucers with multiple drain holes for a very attractive presentation. Please email to double check if the styling you want is available in the 12D1 shallow saucer-pot.  For the near future, we will offer both at the same price, but will be moving more towards the 12D1 shallow saucer-pot which is a nice transition size to the popular "Entry-Level Custom Collection" plants.
 
     4.     CC (CUSTOM COLLECTION) in 17"x12"x2" oval pots starting from $400 and up.  Individually priced and photographed. ("Sumo,"  "Roots,"  "Dragon" and "Root-Over-Rock" stylings)  
 
 
 
THREE MAJOR TRAINING CONCEPTS
          Our logo designs tend to follow Japanese, Chinese, and modern traditions.  How do you tell people that one group of trees have short stout trunks with a lot of branches? We decided that the Japanese sumo warrior was the ideal symbol. Roots was initially difficult but it turned out to be the easiest. Hawaiian Dragons is our favorite and the symbol of our family. This design took many years to complete.
 
       1.  SUMO:  Short and stout;  heavy trunks, multiple trunks, low branches with heavy trunk-root buttressing.  These are favored by "traditional" bonsai growers who are impressed with the large heavy trunk-roots.  All Hawaiian Lava Plantings are SUMO so this is our basic original style.
 
       2.  ROOTS:  Sumo crown on tall elegant exposed roots. This was our second major styling and is the most popular.  Indoors, many consider the taller root trees as the most attractive as the roots are the distinctive feature of banyan bonsai. Most are upright with some slanting.
 
       3.  DRAGON:  Twisty, turning, fun bonsai! These are the picture of activity and are never boring! As time permits,  we are training more complex combination Roots/Dragons and these are increasingly popular with most sold before they can mature into older Custom Collection.

           NOTE:  Fuku-Bonsai is upgrading this popular item by utilizing a round shallow 12"diameter x 1.25" deep saucer with custom drainage holes drilled to produce an attractive item to be offered at the same price with current rectangular pot to be phased out.  This will utilize the "1:10 Project" concepts of shallow containers 10x wider than they are deep.  We have begun potting and have a limited number ready for shipping.  THIS IS AN IMPRESSIVE GIFT ITEM! PLEASE EMAIL david.f@fukubonsai.com for more information or to check availability.

            This model size was inserted into our product line to fit the price point between the former 8LS8 and the Custom Collection (entry level).  It has proven to be a popular size and we will increasingly train for this price range.

             The cream of our crop.  Each specific plant is individually photographed, described, and priced.  Please request more information.

              NOTE:  Our "Entry Level" Custom Collection is priced at $400 + shipping with the plants the larger and more developed 9RLS8 plants that are at least 10 years or more in training.  There's a lot of detailed work that goes into up-potting these older trees into 17"x12"x2" oval pots and for those who want just one or two nice trees,  this is a popular choice as the trees are already attractive and with the recent repotting, there is strong growth for continuing development. 

              "ENTRY-LEVEL CUSTOM COLLECTION" IS AN EXCEPTIONAL VALUE FOR THOSE WHO WANT A LARGER 16" TO 22" TALL BONSAI IN THE OVAL 17"X12"X2" POT.  THIS ITEM IS ALMOST ALWAYS SOLD OUT AND IF WE CAN INCREASE INVENTORY, WE WILL CREATE A "17LS8 MODEL ITEM" AND SHOW THREE EACH OF SUMO, ROOTS, AND DRAGONS TO SHOW THE RANGE OF DEVELOPMENT. WE HOPE TO HAVE THIS BY SPRING 2018.     

              Higher priced, highest quality, older trees up to 40 years in training are also available from the pioneer of True Indoor Bonsai since 1962!  For more Custom Collection information:  go to www.fukubonsai.com/3a2b.html.    This section of our product line is steadily evolving.  For more current information, please contact David W.
