Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Andrew Awesome species but tree recieved could be better
This tree is so cool, i only wish it had been in better shape when i got it. It had a lot of broken limbs and it didn't really have an interesting shape, but the tree was otherwise healthy. This tree is a good "pre bonsai" subject but will require a lot of work to really get a true bonsai structure, but would be sufficient for somebody who is looking for a decent/good looking "bonsai" tree for their coffee table. I like that this tree is readily available through home depot, because it is a fairly uncommon species and it is hard to find in nurseries and other stores.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BigLeo213 Not what I was expecting.
The Brazilian rain tree I received didn't look like the picture online. The bonsai arrived with very little leaves. I was very disappointed with this bonsai. Hopefully, it gets better with a little love and care.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by pinupgirl2b Not Easy or for The Novice
I ordered this plant thinking that I was in for a treat , because the leaves open and close according to the weather. It seemed fairly easy to take care of by research that I had done on the web prior to ordering it , so with that I sank the money into it. Now I do have several bonsai plants, so I'm not a total novice but this plant was a big disappointment. It arrived well packaged but had about 3 leaves when it got here(Pa).Knowing that it got cold in shipping ,I tried to nurse it back to health,I moved it to a sunny spot, misted it daily, fertilized it and finally after 2 more months saw about 12 new small leaves.Then these too died, I threw in the towel and returned it for a full refund.

THESE TREES THAT I RECEIVED WERE TALL AND LANKY AND LOOKED NOTHING LIKE THE PICTURE. THEY WERE WILTED BEYOND BELIEF. I TOOK THEM OUT OF THE BOX AND MISTED THEM FOR DAYS BEFORE THEY PERKED UP. ONCE ESTABLISHED I TOPPED THEM TO TRY TO IMPROVE THE DESITY OF THE LEAVES. BUY THEM AT YOUR OWN RISK..

I got it today and have already called about returning it. Dead leaves. Wilted. Not for this price. Shipping material stuck in the leaves. I'm taking it back tomorrow to a local store to get my money back. The agent I spoke to on the phone asked if I wanted a new one shipped. My reply was no other plant should deserve this. Worse than the Charlie Brown Christmas Tree. I can't imagined it was this pitiful and damaged when a Home Depot warehouse shipped it. I'm pretty sure it already had issues. Wilted in most areas. Dead in others. Save yourself the trouble! Btw, in review with the "Enhance Your Review" feature, same day replying is not an option; your least option is a week, but I have to return it within three days to get a refund although your invoice tells you up to 90 "Most merchandise must be returned within 90 days". If you buy this and have my experience please call the day you receive it. I have a job and don't want to leave this thing dying even more in my car while I'm at work, but I want to be able to work. It's a headache. I say run away from this item to be shipped.

I bought two of these 3 years ago and they are still going strong. I love them and the way they look. They really do open and close their leaves when it gets hot or rains. I am thinking of getting some different bonsai now. Keep them fertilized with bonsai fertilizer.
