These little dwarf Mandarin trees are organically grown, made using the Japanese bonsai technique of kokedama along with a little bit of soil science. Twig makes sure they are well established before shipping. Simply take out of the box, soak, and hang. They ship small, being only about two feet, this keeps them safe until they reach their intended home. The rope used is nautical rope, known for its durability. It is tied so that it retains its balance when hung. A sculptural bowl also works if you don't have a sunny window spot picked out yet.
