1. Check the "Planter Dishes" section post below to select the size of your planter, the glaze colour of the planter, and the colour of the growing substrate. Note that for a new bonsai, there is a base treasure price for each planter size!

2. Check the "Bonsai Trees" post for the selection of available trees.

3. Check the "Wildlife & Items" post to select additional features to decorate your Bonsai with.

4. Check the "Animations" post to select from a number of different animations.

5. Post Order Form in this thread and send a Private Message* with the required item quantities attached (see below posts for quantities). Any specific details about the placement of features is to be stated in your in-thread post.

*Notes: Messages strongly preferred over Crossroads due to issues with items being unavailable to complete the One-Way Trades if they are left to sit for too long.

If everything is alright with your order I'll simply add you to the slots list and save on the pings.

Alternative Order Methods:
1k icon_treasure.png = 1 icon_gems.png

Items can now be paid for with pure currency instead of mixed with items. Each item has a flat cost of 5kt with additional costs for the dish, colors and animations. This order method CANNOT be mixed with items. (meaning no mixed payments)

Breakdown: planter base price + 20kt if colored+ 5kt for any additional subtrate, plant, creature or decoration + any animation costs.


Order an Artist's Choice Bonsai and pay a flat fee of 20kt for a random, static 150px planter arrangement. You may choose a theme* for the planter or leave it entirely up to me.
*themes could include: a season, color(s), a specific plant/animal, a dragon, etc.

This shop uses 2 payment options:

1) treasure/gems + items (same as original shop): A base treasure cost for the planter and/or animations + the appropriate number of items as shown in the posts below.

2) pure currency: Pay with only currency. Breakdown: planter base price + 20kt if color + 5kt for any additional subtrate, plant, creature or decoration + any animation costs.

These 2 options CANNOT be combined (please see FAQ)

Explanation of Seasonal Stages

Bonsai trees are selected from 4 different stages that reflect the Real World Seasons.

Deciduous Trees

Spring: New leaf bud growths
Summer: Typical Colouration
Autumn: Leaves change colours
Winter: Bare Branches

Spring // Summer // Autumn // Winter

Coniferous Trees

Spring: Bright-Coloured growths at branch tips
Summer: Growth of unripe seed pods
Autumn: Browning of needles and mature seeds
Winter: Typical Colouration

Spring // Summer // Autumn // Winter

Fruiting Trees

Spring: Flowering Branches
Summer: Small and/or off-colour fruits
Autumn: Mature and ripened fruits
Winter: Few fruits remain*

Spring // Summer // Autumn // Winter

*Fruiting Evergreen trees do not lose leaves in Winter stage

Description of Plants:
There are 5 general descriptors used to categorize plant items.

Ground-cover: Effective at covering the substrate without much interference with the leaves of the Bonsai. May interact slightly with the planter edge.
Medium Plant: Ground cover plants that also may extend to bonsai branches
Grows on Bonsai: Either grows on trunk, hangs from branches, or both.
Overhangs Planter: Ground cover that also grows over the edge of the planter.
Extra-Tall Plant: Narrow stalks, but approach the same height as the Bonsai.
Shrubs: Can grow to cover the same area as a small Bonsai, but are not as suitable for perching birds or climbing animals.

No one's actually asking these questions but I think it'd be good to share...

Q: When should I send payment?
I haven't had any problems with payments so for now I allow payment before or after the order (whatever's more convenient for you). This might change if lots of people start skipping out on payment. Rule of thumb: If you have to ask. Just send the payment.

Q: Can I mix the two payment options?
Generally, no. Please pay either in treasure/gems or with items. While some items can only be purchased with treasure (base price, subtrate), I'm not taking mixed for the items that don't. This is because some people work hard to prepare all the relevant items and it would be unfair to them unless the costs were much higher. Occasionally I may allow people to replace a single item for a 5k cost if it is a large order but I prefer not to make too many exceptions.

Q: What's different from the main shop?
- Pure treasure/gem payment options.
- Artist's Choice order option for a flat fee.
- Simple Animations.
- Changes to the rules on updating existing bonsai.
- 200px planter base price increased to 6kt.
- No lemmings, mantises or special effects
- Slots system with waitlist queue in place for ordering.

Q: Why an affiliate shop? What are your limitations and guidelines?

Main Shop General Objectives:
1. To provide pixel arrangements suitable for signatures and dragon/profile bios
2. To create a “minigame” atmosphere that gives a use to collecting FR items

Affiliates Objectives:
1. To open a parallel shop to keep general order traffic to a manageable level.
2. To offer services that are otherwise not possible at the main shop. This may include animated pixel arrangements, additional environmental effects, long-form creative writing, etc.
3. To keep the pixel assets available on Flight Rising in the event that miirshroom can no longer run the main shop for whatever reason.

a) Affiliates may not create new pixel sprites. New sprites are to be provided solely by miirshroom, as a means of keeping a consistent art style.
