  1. Hi
    Do you have any bonzai trees that are less than the range of bonzai shown on this site ie. $49.99? I am looking for one as its my dream to have one bottle brush as a bonzai , but I cant afford this expensive plant. I should be sure as well that if I am spending, it should flower and it should be able to sustain long.
    Best Regards
