mai kam ma-lo (ไม้กำมะลอ)

Thai. ‘Self-styled tree’, ‘mock tree or bogus tree. A small, manipulated, bonsai-like tree or shrub, with a bare trunk that can be straight or bent at the base. It has bare branches, that bear bushes of foliage -preferably globular in shape- at their outermost tips, like a bouquet of twigs and leaves. The bark is pale greyish in colour and the branches are manipulated in order to make them bend and divert their growth, altering their flow to appear winding-down and up, which is considered pleasant to the eyes.
