excellent value, and shows character.

This Moreton Bay Fig twin trunk started as two seeds, collected from a mature tree growing in Applecross, Western Australia. They have been allowed to grow together as friends, like siblings should, all their lives. They have been created as a Bonsai together so that they can continue to live like sibling twins forever.
Quite untrained in the foliage, I’m allowing the branches to spread and encouraging thicker growth of branches by allowing leaves to grow larger before leaf reduction. With continued training the canopy will fill out beautifully and the leaves can be made small and numerous, just with trimming and sunshine.
These fig trees originate in in a warm, humid climate but have been naturalized all over Australia. They have been planted throughout Fremantle Parks and Gardens as they are very tolerant to adverse conditions. They withstand huge winds (The Fremantle Doctor), Summer Drought Conditions (40 degrees celcius), Winter frosts (2 degrees celcius) and salt deposits (coastline sediments). All they ask for is a regular drink of water and good feed of manure.
All Bonsai Palace Bonsai are presented with a Bonsai Birth Certificate and detailed care instructions. Also, we offer a free ‘feed and groom’ for each Bonsai within three months of purchase. Just visit Liana at the Palmyra Market on a Sunday for free Bonsai advice.
