Bonsai Raffia Tape
Bonsai raffia tape is used over raffia to help support branches when bending. When wrapped tightly and overlapping it provides significant additional structural support for branches and helps retain moisture which is thought to help the branch recover from the bend at a faster rate.
Raffia tape is meant to be applied over raffia and will self fuse to itself after several minutes. Raffia tape will not stick to any part of the tree or you, only itself. The tape can be stretched up to 300%. Raffia tape will not get hard and crack like electrical tape and it can withstand extreme heat and cold.
Raffia tape is available in black, green, clear and red. Each roll is 10' long and 1" wide. When stretched you will get about 30' of tape.

Fast and perfect product
Order was accurate and quick. Very pleased
This stuff is great! After deciding to remove one of the branches that I had wrapped, I decided to push the limits of this tape. I had wrapped the branch in super fly’s raffia and then the raffia tape on a cypress. I couldn’t believe how much bend I was able to get into that removed branch before failure!
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Is it ok to apply this tape to wet wrapped raffia? Wouldn't it retain too much moisture? Thanks
The purpose of the black tape is to provide a little extra support and primarily to retain moisture for the areas of damaged tissue from the bends. It is ideal to apply this prior to the raffia drying.

Plants & Tree Shipping:
We ship bonsai trees and plants from either our parnter nursery or our in house nursery depending on the tree. We may limit when we ship trees to help limit their exposure to extreme environments. For example we may not ship if it will cause the tree to sit in a truck over a weekend or holiday in very low temperatures or very high temps.
If we are shipping from our Harrisburg, PA location, the tree may arrive via any carrier, but usually UPS or USPS. Time in transit will be 1-2 days in the northeast, 2-3 days in the southeast, 3-4 days in the midwest and usually 5 days for the west coast.
Trees are shipped in custom boxes made just for shipping trees. Sometimes we wrap the pot and soil in plastic to prevent it from spilling out in transit. Many times we use packing peanuts as they have proven to be very reliable in keeping trees safe in shipping. If a box is noticiably damaged, please take pictures prior to opening.
Please Note: We do not ship plants and trees to California
