If you have space for a few plants, they should be taken in odd numbers and choices of different sizes, not very regular in the foliage, but of the same essence.
Plants with trunks bigger they must be placed in front, the others in the background with respect to the viewer, to give depth. The arrangement must be carefully studied to ensure that if you look from different directions, perpendicular to each other, all the trunks must be visible.
As the our bonsai grove, we make sure that the branches grow outwards to form a single crown or a maximum of two triangular crowns.
