Malpighia coccigera is commonly known as Singapore holly or dwarf holly due to the shape of its leaves, but is not a true holly. Its white flowers are followed by red berries, which are technically drupes. The fruit are favorite by birds that disperse the seeds through droppings. It is grown as an ornamental plant and often used to make bonsai.
Age : 2-3 Years
Size (Approx) : L X W X H : 4" x 4" x 6"
Note : The plant might differ a little than the picture as each Bonsai is created differently.
Normal watering along with good amounts of sunlight is needed. The simpler styles are chosen for mame bonsai, because their size does not make it possible to train them into the more complicated shapes such as Winding or Clasped to the stone. The Upright, Oblique and Cascading styles all make attractive mame bonsai and a group planting can be most effective.
