There’s something really calming about the art of Bonsai; looking at mini-trees in their perfect yet small forms, and the art of creating them itself brings joy. With tiny apartments, and tinier windows of time to care for greenery, You, Me & Bonsai is your answer to having a mini-forest in your home.
The Hyderabad based startup set up shop here in 2019 in a small, home based studio in Banashankari and you could say we were impressed. With plants that are over 40 years old, we spotted mango, bougainvillea, orange, Singapore cherries, and the popular Jade, and Ficus as well. Prices start at INR 1,000 depending on the size, age, and variety of the tree. Find trees in the following styles - formal upright, informal upright, slanting, cascading, and semi-cascading. Confused? They’ll happily explain it to you.
Our favourite is the jungle/forest arrangement which really does look like a tiny forest! Second is the coconut shell cascading form, where the plant is nurtured in a coconut shell shaped pot, and is really quite artistic in its final design. For those of you who are intimidated by the idea of caring for bonsai, fear not! They conduct workshops periodically, and if you happen to buy from them, they’ll set you up with all the information, accessories and tools required.
