Continuing on with the Japandi vibes, I’ve added a Bonsai tree to this list. The tradition of keeping potted bonsai trees has been a tradition in China, Korea, and Japan. Buddhist monks would tend to these trees so that they could keep nature inside of their temples. There are a lot of different types of potted trees, but here in the United States, we use “bonsai tree” more as a blanket term to cover all of these tiny plants.
Having any plant in your home adds an element of style, clears the air, and simply feels wonderful. But there is something so special about a bonsai tree, because you need to pour so much love, time, and care into making it flourish. Some bonsai trees have lived for over 100 years, so this could even be something you pass down through your family. If you’re trying to incorporate Japandi style into your house, it can also be a great way to make that more obvious, since most people associate bonsai trees with Japan.
