Hombachi

Literally, a formal pot. It refers to a container that is used to plant a bonsai tree for appreciation. In general, ''hombachi'' pots lack aerial property and are not suitable for plant cultivation, so it is better to use a ''baiyobachi'' (pot for cultivation) that is made of loose paste to grow and manage bonsai trees on a daily basis. As ''hombachi'' pots are used for appreciation of bonsai plants, growers need to pay attention to the combination and matching with a bonsai tree in purchasing such a formal pot.
