This question sounds silly, but I was just wondering since we are saying that the elements of the set are only for numbers greater than 0.

$a \in \mathbb R\ and\ 0 \le a \implies a + 1 \in \mathbb R\ and\ 0 \le a + 1.$ So there is no upper bound on that interval. There is of course a lower bound, namely zero.

And therefore, by the standard definition of "bounded", this set is not bounded.
