This medium sizing classification for BONSAI>BONSAI is pronounced "sho-hin" and is between 15-30 cms (6-12 inches) in height.

Being larger than MAME , the shohin tree can usually incorporate more detail into the design. Generally the measurement is taken as the longest line of the tree. So in upright trees it is from the rim of the pot to the APEX of the tree. For cascades it would be the apex to the tip. Generally, the proportion rather more critical than the exact size.

Shohin tree shown is a Musk Maple, courtesy of WATTSTON BONSAI.
