This is a 6 years old Ardisia elliptica bonsai with an old tree look, a very strong and beautiful root system and good foliage.
The species can make excellent bonsai. Leaves reduce well in container culture. Some cultivars show very extensive red or bronze coloring on the new leaves. Unfortunately this lovely red color does not persist for long as it fades into a dark green as the leaves mature.
Ornamental leathery leaves and pretty pink flowers. Small size bush, this plant is very easy to grow, great for beginners as well as indoor culture. It takes low light with no problem, and needs very little if any care. Ardisias are very popular house plants.
