“Bonsai”Literally, translated it means simply “plant in a pot”. A seed might have fallen into the earth in its original form. “pocket”A stone crevice was where organic material turned into soil and a tree could grow. This is how Bonsai may have started.

The Japanese get the most credit for Bonsai’s development, however, the actual history is far more international and contradictory. To be considered for Bonsai, a plant must only be woody.
It is very important to have the right size leaves. Proper pruning can reduce leaf size, but only up to a certain point. Original “scale”The leaf should not be too big.
In judging a good Bonsai, one’s eye moves up the tree in a fluid-like manner with no distractions, working up from the bottom of the pot to the roots, to the trunk, and up the trunk to the canopy.
It is important to make Bonsai appear as old as possible and mature as quickly as possible. The sculpture “movement”It is essential to have a trunk. The trunk is the most important. “beginning”Point of Bonsai.
Bonsai captures the essence of nature, whether it is on the mountainside, the seashore or elsewhere. Bonsai creates a whole environment.
At best, the soil type should be very fast draining and pebbles without organic matter. An organic mix can be made, but it must drain very quickly.
The soil will drain faster, creating more fibrous roots. Bonsai should have all fibrous Roots due to their efficiency in absorbing nutrients.
Bonsai experiences seasonal changes like the leaves and buds, fruits, or colors of trees in Nature.
There is a common misconception that Bonsai means a plant that is not. “tortured”. This is not true. It is the opposite.
Too much attention can lead to the death of Bonsai. Only use water when it is absolutely necessary. You want to keep your skin dry, but not too dry.
You can check for moisture by inserting a chopstick into the soil. This is much like an oil dipstick. The more light you have, the better.
Bonsai can be divided into a front, back and two sides. You should ensure that the “front”It is done before you can plant.
To keep bonsai roots stable, they must be secured to the bottom of the pot using wire. A mass of fibrous roots in fast draining soil is called a “sponge-like”machine so that roots can absorb nutrients efficiently. There will be many roots, which means there will be many leaves.
A Bonsai can develop in 40 to 50 years, just like a human being. “large”Tree in nature The crown becomes rounder, the branches tend droop, and the trunk becomes thicker.
Always drink water from the top. Do not “dunk”The pot can be turned into a watering hole. Water can also be used to wash away dust and insects. Homes tend to be dry. Misting is acceptable (or placing a pot on top a humidity tray of moist stones).
Bonsai prefer liquid fertilizer that is balanced. Do not use sticks, balls, etc. You should not use compost tea (it can have more microscopic bacteria living on the soil).
Bonsai should have a contrasting color. “human, ballet-like form”With foliage in various places. Reduce the growth of branches that are directly down and vertical.
You can keep branches vertically or slightly down. Many “clip and grow”, “clip and grow”For proper training, you should do this repeatedly with lots of directional pruning. Take away any horizontal branches that are not healthy and green. You can also take the new leaves from those growing either up or downward. Cut any branch that has reached (5) new leaf size to get to (2).
There is no such thing. “instant Bonsai”. Always let grow, cut back, let grow, cut back.
Do not cut branches too close to the trunk. Special branch pruners are made for Bonsai. This is the opposite of Horticultural Training on pruning branches of large trees. The tree will be “slow down” in winter with little pruning necessary as (5) leaves won’t develop so fast.
“Bonsai has a beginning, but no end. A bud today becomes a branch tomorrow. The farther it is pursued, the farther away it is” (Chase Rosade).
