Buy Chinese Elm Bonsai: How Not to Get Scammed When Purchasing a Chinese Elm Bonsai Tree!

Whenever we are planning to buy Chinese elm bonsai we tend to go for offline options as it looks more practical. Unfortunately in today’s world, offline stores specialised in bonsai collections are rare. Which is why we opt for online stores. Buying a bonsai from online stores is not a bad idea if you know what to buy and where to buy it. In this article, I will tell you what to look for when buying a bonsai to ensure you never get scammed. But if you are looking for a Chinese elm bonsai for sale you can proceed to the page highlighted. We have achieved a huge collection of Chinese elm bonsai to choose from. 

Where To Buy Chinese Elm Bonsai?

You can buy Chinese elm bonsai in two ways;

1) Local Nursery Stores:

If you are someone who loves to purchase something after visually inspecting it local nurseries are your preferable option. Chinese elm bonsai is a popular species in the bonsai realm so there’s a high chance that you will find one. But the collection will indeed be way less than the online stores. If you find a tree and notice some flaws in it you still probably have to stick with it as there will be no other options available. 

You can simply search on Google “Chinese elm bonsai for sale near me” to find shops. Plenty of shops near your location will pop up. Other than that you can check the articles that we created for popular cities. We have covered places like Hyderabad, Kolkata, Indore, Ahambad, Pune, and Noida. We have covered both online and offline options in those articles. We covered as many cities as possible. You can visit your nearest city to get the bonsai as well. 

2) Online Stores:

Online stores have a huge collection to buy Chinese elm bonsai. You can choose the tree based on its size, shape, and offers. In these stores, you can buy Chinese elm bonsai with the best deals as well. The only drawback of online stores is that in most of the online stores, you won’t be able to know what you are purchasing. 

For this reason in Abana Homes, we tried to keep it as transparent as possible. You can ask for personalised pictures before purchasing the bonsai. We will happily provide it to you. 

No matter where you purchase your bonsai you need to look for some aspects and these are;

1) Pick The One With The Healthy Foliage:

The foliage can give out whether a Bonsai tree has been infested with a pest or disease. If the foliage seems weak and thin, it is probably unhealthy. Examine it carefully and look for yellow patches, damaged leaves, or pests. If you see something that doesn’t look right, request information about it. If they don’t have a suitable reply, don’t go for the tree.

2) Check Out The Structure:

Any bonsai tree you choose should have overall nice proportions. Examine the proportions of the canopy, flowers, fruits, and scale to the entire body. Big leaves are not suitable for smaller bonsai trees. This also refers to other portions of the tree that may interfere with proportion. Some procedures can adjust the precise proportion, but they need time and effort, so get a precisely designed design instead. 

3) Check Out The Trunk:

A trunk should always be thicker than the branches. Make sure your Chinese elm bonsai tree’s base is thicker and narrower as it reaches the top. 

4) Indoor/Outdoor Preference:

Buy Chinese elm bonsai tree that is appropriate for the area where you plan to put it. Chinese elm bonsai can be kept both indoors and outdoors but they need plenty of natural light. So, if you are planning to keep the bonsai indoors make sure your indoor has natural lights or places like a window on the south. 

Signs Of A Healthy Chinese Elm Bonsai:

  1. Even branch distribution is the first thing to look for. All angles of the bonsai should have even branching. 
  2. Check the nebari. The roots of Chinese elm bonsai should not be peaking out of the soil. It should be well distributed near the base. 
  3. The leaves of the Chinese elm bonsai should be small, leathery, and vibrant green. 
  4. The trunk of the tree should look solid without any bite marks on the wire or it will be a sign of negligence. 

Signs of a Unhealthy Chinese Elm Bonsai:

  1. Discoloured yellow leaves are a red flag. Note that your Chinese elm bonsai displays different colours in autumn. It’s normal during that time. But if the seller is trying to say it in another season, move on. 
  2. The leaves will have rough edges or irregular spots on the body. 
  3. The trunk would look bumpy with lots of scars. 
  4. The roots will peak out of the soil.
