ProFlowers Golden Gate Ficus Bonsai (Review & Giveaway)

Bonsai (盆栽 Japanese) (lit. tray cultivation) is the art of growing trees, or woody plants shaped as trees, in containers
    A Little Bit About the Golden Gate Ficus Bonsai from ProFlowers
This Golden Gate Ficus Bonsai is approximately 4 years old(6-8" tall), and a fitting present for a budding executive or a treasured relative: no occasion necessary! The Golden Gate Bonsai (Ficus microcarpa) is a tropical plant and will thrive in a sunny area. Place indoors near windows facing southeast or west. Care instructions are included. 
                                               My Experience
It is so much fun to browse through the variety of Bonsai's offered by ProFlowers. Available for both indoors and outdoors, with flowering and non flowering selections available, there is a bonsai to match everyone's personality.  The reflection pool potted Bonsai's are exquisite (definitely on my wish list).  As a mom, life is often chaotic. If I'm not working or running somewhere with the kids, i'm grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning or taking care of some other domestic responsibility (all of which I enjoy every minute of...what a wonderful chaos ). Although I love the hustle and bustle of family life, I too need time to relax. Spending late nights on school work ( I am currently pursuing my Master's degree online at night) or here blogging my heart out......often leaves little time for relaxation. So, if you can't go somewhere to relax, bring relaxation to you! Which is exactly what the Golden Gate Ficus Bonsai has brought to my desk; a touch of tranquility.

This beautiful little tree arrived in a gorgeous ceramic pot, and was packaged with extreme care - perfect right out of the box. The tree is wrapped well to ensure that it does not dry out , and the insert keeps the tree from shifting during shipment. The Art of Bonsai has always interested me, and I'm excited to learn as I go. I love the way plants liven up a space, it really is the perfect touch!
