Style: Kabudachi


The “Kabudachi” or “Clump” style is characterized by having many plants of the same species, usually an odd number, in a single bonsai pot. It is common in nature, but not so common in bonsai art. This style tries to recreate a fallen trunk that generates branches that become trunks of new plants themselves. For this reason, it's important that each trunk grows out from the same base. It's also important to maintain a triangular shape in the whole formation as well as in each individual plant.
