Training wire can make it easy for those looking to create a custom shape with their bonsai. Simply wrap the branches with the wire and bend your branches or position them into a desired shape. Use it to cascade a juniper or spread and arrange branches in pads or layers. Wire is also useful for creating guy wires when needing to hold down branches. Choose from our wide select of bonsai wire. Our Bonsai wire is made of Aluminum and available in the following sizes: 1.0mm (currently sold out), 1.2mm, 1.5mm, 1.8mm, 2.0mm (currently sold out), 2.5mm (currently sold out), 3.0mm, 3.5mm(currently sold out), 4.0mm, 5.0mm, 6.0mm, 7.0mm.
We recommending using a wire that is 1/3 to 1/2 of the thickness of the branch you are trying to bend. A quick trick to tell what type of wire to use is to push the wire against the branch. If the wire moves the branch, the wire is thick enough. If the branch moves the wire, then you may need to go with a thicker gauge.
