Plastic Bonsai Pots

Handmade pots
These pots are premium quality and unique.  These are best used when you bonsai is show ready.

Production Pots
These pots are made out of clay and mass produced.  Some are good for training trees, some are show quality.

 Mica Pots
These pots are a mix of mica, graphite and resin.  These are great training pots and will last a very long time.

Plastic Pots
These pots are made from UV resistant plastic.  These are used primarily for training, but are very budget friendly.


Price - Price can vary greatly from one product to another.  Generally speaking plastic is the lowest cost followed by mica.  The production pots can be pretty low cost, but also can be fairly pricey for a quality Japanese bonsai pot.  The handmade bonsai pots are usually the highest price for a pot.  Most smaller pots are lower cost and large pots can be very high priced depending on the artist or material they are made from.

Quality - Ceramic pots generally are the highest quality.  Both handmade ceramic pots and production pots can (if taken care of) last forever.  Mica pots usually have a pretty long life lasting 20 - 30 years or longer if you don't mind the way they look after time.  The plastic bonsai pots can last from 5 - 25 years depending on the conditions the pot is stored in.
