Bonsai from Fejka-plants

DIY bonsai

Materials: Two Fejka plants

Description: I took one Ikea Fejka-plant to use as the tree trunk of the bonsai, and leaves from an another Ikea Fejka plant. I bent the branches some and set it into a different pot. I used hotglue to attach the branches with leaves, and some dark gravel to fill the pot.

    I love the idea!! It’s so clever! I bought a (living) bonsai from Ikea but it lost all of its leaves, so now I’m just left with a trunk. I now know how to recycle it! Thanks for the idea.

    Clever! :D

    Siis minähän oon tappanut noita bonsaipuita ihan urakalla. Yksikään ei ole selvinnyt vuotta pidempään elävänä, en tiedä miksi. Tässäpä mulle ratkaisu! :D

    While this is an interesting look, I would feel a little weird living with this Frankenplant.

    I clicked on it because I took thought it was going to be a real bonsai. Now I’m just confused. Dear Satu Tarsaranta, I applaud your creativity, but you have a big window for a real plant or bonsai. Why?

    Darn, I thought this was going to be a living bonsai. Clever, nonetheless!
