Kobanbachi is a Japanese term for a bonsai pot that has an oval or elliptical shape. Kobanbachi pots are best suited for trees that have a gentle shape, such as slim single-trunk trees or group-planted Japanese maples. Kobanbachi pots can also be used for fruit-bearing trees, such as dwarf apples, that need more depth. Kobanbachi pots are also known as Daenbachi pots, which means oval pots.
