2017 GIFT LIST #2


             NOTE:  Fuku-Bonsai is in the midst of a major product line evolution. It will take a while to complete this evolution and in this interim period,  there may be other sizes that are individually priced to be available only to those who visit the Fuku-Bonsai Cultural Center in Kurtistown.  Please write for more information or if you'll be visiting.

            NOTE:  Popular item 4LL8 has sold out and is discontinued as we no longer can get the 5x3x2 plastic pots.  WE ARE TEMPORARILY OFFERING NEW ITEM "5C-8" IN A RANGE OF CERAMIC BONSAI POTS AS DESCRIBED BELOW. (March 15, 2017)

      Regards and aloha,  ~~~David   (david.f@fukubonsai.com)



     1.     5C-8 (to replace the former 4LL8)  in 5" ceramic pots:  $49.95 + shipping ("Sumo,"  "Roots,"  and "Dragon" stylings)  This is a temporary replacement; there will be another change in the future with introduction of a smaller ceramic potted item (with a lower price but SUMO styling only), and a larger ceramic potted item to replace 7RLS8.  Write for more information if needed. ~~~David
     2.      7RLS8 (LIVING SCULPTURE) in 7 3/4" x 5 1/2"  2 1/2" rectangular pots:  $89.95 + shipping;  ("Sumo,"  "Roots,"  and "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;  ("Sumo,"  "Roots,"  and "Dragon" stylings).  This new size is slightly larger than our former 8LS8 round pot items.  In the future, this interim size pot will be replaced with another slightly larger pot so there will be a nice transition size to the popular "Entry-Level Custom Collection" plants.
     4.     CC (CUSTOM COLLECTION) in 17"x12"x2" oval pots starting from $350 and up.  Individually priced and photographed. ("Sumo,"  "Roots,"  "Dragon" and "Root-Over-Rock" stylings)  
          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.
       2.  ROOTS:  Sumo crown on tall elegant exposed roots.
       3.  DRAGON:  Twisty, turning, fun bonsai! These are the picture of activity and are never boring!

5C-8  SUMO               5C-8  ROOTS            5C-8 DRAGON


7RLS8 LIVING SCULPTURE. $89.95 + shipping

            These are in 7 3/4" x 5 1/2" x 2 1/2" rectangular pots that are mid-size between the smaller 4LL8 and the larger 9LS8 model items and are good values.  Photos not yet available but being sent satisfaction guaranteed.  They are slightly smaller than the popular former 8LS8 that has been discontinued as the former pot is no longer available. It is being replaced with items that have a slightly smaller and a slightly larger  size dimension specification.  The two new sizes fill the gap between the 4LL8 and Custom Collection.


7RLS8-S  SUMO         7RLS8-R  ROOTS        7RLS8-D  DRAGON


9RLS8 LARGER LIVING SCULPTURE. $179.95 + shipping

           These are in 8.5" x 6" x 2.5" heavier rectangular pots and are popular with visitors to the Fuku-Bonsai Cultural Center as they are nice size bonsai for displaying in place of a flower arrangement.  These are ready for refinement into a nice medium-large bonsai.  Or use a #17 Conversion Kit to grow-on to a large Custom Collection size.   Photos below show examples of items in "model range."  These show examples, but actual items shipped will vary as each of our plants are individually trained.


 9RLS8-S SUMO               9RLS8-R  ROOTS             9RLS8-D  DRAGON

           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.

              "Entry Level" Custom Collection is priced at $350 + shipping with the plants at the larger and more developed than the 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.  

              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. Fukumoto at david.f@fukubonsai.com
