Bonsai as a Business

Bonsai is more than just a hobby. It can also be a business. 

While many people admire Bonsai trees for their beauty and elegance, very few people have the patience and skill to grow a bonsai on their own. There is a good market for readymade Bonsais. Bonsai trees command good prices based on the age, species and appearance.

Many customers, particularly companies like to have bonsai trees in their offices on a rental basis as they may not be able to care for the trees on their own.

Bonsai experts are also in demand for training classes. 

The Bonsai publishing industry is also well established. Experienced Bonsai practitioners can publish books,blogs,etc.
