The bonsai of Shogonai teaches us to let go of what can’t be changed. “Shouganai” basically means "it is what it is" or "there is nothing to be done. It expresses acceptance of a bad situation or defeatism. Some things are inevitable, this attractive tree reminds us of that thought every day. A 25 to 30-year-old Zelkova that will remind you every day of this thought.

Species: Zelkova
Age: ≈ 25-30 years old
Height: ≈ 75cm
Pot: 43cm


This carmona is an indoor tree that thrives especially in the summer. In order for the tree to flourish, two main things are of importance: sunlight and watering. 


It is important that the carmona gets as much sunlight as possible, so for instance near a window would be a good spot to place the bonsai. 


Preferably you do not want to water your bonsai on a fixed basis. Instead, just check every now and then by hand if the soil feels slightly dry. If this is the case you can water the bonsai generously.

* Trees pictured are subject to natural changes depending on different breeding batches. 

Your bonsai will be taken from the greenhouse the same day it is delivered.

After you place an order, your order will be shipped within 3 business days.

Good fast delivery, well packaged. It is important that the tree does not dry out during transport. This is super! A manual focused on the type of "bonsai" would have been nice.

"Top company with fantastic service"

Besides that the tree looks awfully good, the service is also fantastic. After the first package was lost in the mail, they immediately switched and provided a solution. 10/10!

The Story of Shoganai

“A villager told me the story about the Chinese farmer. Once upon a time there was a Chinese farmer whose horse ran away. That evening, all of his neighbors came around to commiserate. They said, “We are so sorry to hear your horse has run away. This is most unfortunate.” The farmer said, “Maybe.” The next day the horse came back bringing seven wild horses with it, and in the evening everybody came back and said, “Oh, isn’t that lucky. What a great turn of events. You now have eight horses!” The farmer again said, “Maybe.” Often we label our experience as “bad” if we hate it. And “good” if we like it. But the bad cannot exist without the good, and vice versa. Whatever happens in our life, we’ll never know the consequences it may bring in the future.”
