They are the miniature of a bonsai tree, shorter than 15 cm (6 inches), they easily lay on the palm of your hand: they are mame bonsai.

Mame are more difficult to cultivate as their minute dimensions make them very fragile, yet, if well treated, they can have an exceptional long life.

Cultivating mame rises a lot of troubles, think of their little dimension and what will happen when the wind batters them; think of how little is the soil in their pot and how fast it can dry; think of how big are your fingers when touching its foliage, like an elephant in a christallery.
