Bonsai plants, easier to grow than you may think
These small bonsai plants are much nicer to look at and are just as easy to grow as any indoor plant. Many indoor varieties can be grown outdoors in warmer climates. You can choose an exotic or a tropical bonsai plant for something unique. Don’t pass on some of the Evergreens they are spectacular.
Everyone likes to use house plants to add a bit of color or to keep a room looking fresh. Indoor Bonsai trees look fantastic when used as a decoration and matched with your other home accessories. Small bonsai plants and trees are ideal accessories to use as a table centrepiece. Display pots are more decorative and are typically ceramic with either a shiny, glazed finish, or an unglazed dull finish. Ceramic pots are also frost proof which is a good idea if you have outdoor bonsai. While display pots are beautiful, its important not to choose a pot that will overshadow the beauty of your bonsai, choose one that will enhance the beauty of your tree.

Cascade and semi-cascade bonsai plants are shaped similar to trees that grow over water or on the sides of mountains. Semi-cascade do not lean as far downward as the cascade style. Raft style plants are those that are planted on their side and can include many other shapes, straight-line and group plantings. These all give the illusion of a group of trees, but are actually the branches planted on its side.
Small House Plants in Bathrooms

When buying house plants for decorating keep one thing in mind, size does matter. If your bonsai plant is going to be used as a coffee table centerpiece then keep it between 6 and 9 inches. Bonsai can be a bit taller when placed in the middle of a dining table.
Color wise it really comes down to your own personal preference. Flowering bonsai plants and or evergreen, both can add color to a room. Because these tiny plants already come with their own pots you would only need to buy a humidity drip tray to go with it, its absolutely necessary but highly recommended.
