Bonsai Pots

There is an art and an aesthetic philosophy to choosing a pot for bonsai. A lot of it is dependant on the type of tree, size of tree and the style in which you will grow it but here are some general guidelines that will help.


Shapes of Pots: They typically come in square, rectangular, oval or round and in a variety of heights. With the round and square dishes you will typically plant the tree right in the center and with the oval and rectangular ones you will plant the tree off center. The image below shows this. This is a traditional way of planting a single tree but you are of course free to try it any way you like! There is a certain aesthetic balance to this placement that is tried and true and if you use this placement you can be assured it will look good.
