Ficus Benjamina (9" H)
A less traditional type of tree used for Bonsai, it is a popular tree for people who like to have their tree live primarily indoors. It’s a hardy tree that easily adapts to changing environments. This Bonsai has large leaves that grow from stems at the top of the plant. Javier tells us, “Ficus Benjamina do really well in the LA climate and work well indoors. They are very easy and forgiving trees as long as you keep them watered.”
This tree could stay indoors but should be in direct sunlight or spend half it’s time outdoors. Water tree every day. Protect from extreme cold and frost in the winter. Each tree includes a consultation with Javier, where care and maintenance tips will be discussed and best practices for providing the best conditions for your tree to thrive. Additional consultations and styling sessions could be arranged at a later date.

Proyectos Tyrone is a conduit for BIPOC-centric projects that promote artisans/designers/humans from marginalized LA regions. Proyectos Tyrone is happy to release it's second project at Cafe Murmurs with artist Javier Ramirez:
Chido-En is the bonsai project of LA-based artist Javier Ramirez. Chido-En offers traditional bonsai services and a hand-picked amount of carefully selected starter and intermediate trees available for purchase. Merging the Mexican slang word for cool (Chido) and the Japanese word for garden (En), Chido–En also explores the mixing of two distinct cultural realms. With Chido-En, Javier weaves together the ancient Japanese art form of bonsai with his native Mexican-American visual language to present something that feels distinct yet respectful of the two cultures.
