This Do-It-Yourself bonsai kit comes with a Swamp Cypress that has been shaped by putting movement to the trunk. 


The Swamp Cypress (Taxodium distichum) is an upright, conical, deciduous tree found in swampy forest or by river margins located mostly in Southeastern American region up to Latin America. In its native habitat it can reach heights of 20-40 metres. Though often found growing in wet, swampy soils, the Swamp Cypress also grows well in relatively dry soils. In wet soil conditions, Swamp Cypress develop aerial roots known as 'knees' or pneumatophores at water level.
