Hi everyone, kind of a weird question, but maybe someone ws thinking about the similar thing to do.
So I have an old vintage bathtub (from 1987), and I read there that it can be refinished actually like it`s a brand new but with a vintage vibe added.
Anyways, not sure if it`s possible to grow 2-3 bonsai trees in a capacity as large as the tub?
Thanks

Are you planning to place the tub outside or inside? Trees need to be outside, inside they will die

Make it a big bonsai forest.
Larches, for instance.
Put it outdoors, of course.

It`s going to be outside on my backyard, thanks for the feedback!

I agree, forest is the way to go. Getting a single tree look resonable good in a such big pot would set you back a lot financial, break your back digging it out or just take 50 years to grow.
