Bonsai YOU Can Make At Home





This is because the trees grow in drastically different conditions, and require different amounts of water, light and general treatment. Learning about your specific type of tree will greatly assist you in growing bonsai. Once you have learned about your tree, growing bonsai is pretty simple. There are several things you should remember in addition to properly watering and feeding your tree. 

The most challenging aspect of caring for a Baobab bonsai, aside from taking care to water properly, is to acknowledge that these trees take a very long time to grow. You will not get instant results from this type of bonsai tree. You will need to take your time and carefully plan your bonsai design, and realize that these trees may take well over ten years before you will see results. 

Bonsai wire should only be left in position long enough for the tree to be trained to the proper form. Once it is in the design you desire, the wires should be carefully removed. If you wired your tree properly, there will be no evidence that the tree had undergone bonsai wire design. The hardest part of using bonsai wire is knowing which size wire to use. 

With proper care, high quality tools will never need replaced, as they will hold their edge for years. Low quality tools tend to go dull quickly, and run risk of breaking while being used. For advanced users, it is recommended that high quality bonsai tools are exclusively used. For those who have worked with bonsai for many years, their tool set will be far more extensive, ranging from eight to twenty or more different tools for working with the various types of bonsai. 

Leaf trimming and pruning are typically used to maintain the appearance and health of the tree, while wiring, clamping, grafting, defoliation and deadwood are methods used to enhance the overall style and design of the bonsai. Each of these methods needs to be performed with care, as your bonsai trees can be killed if you over prune, over trim, or otherwise critically damage the root and structure of the bonsai trees. 

Bonsai Bonsai is the art of growing trees in small pots, cultivating the look of the tree to be any design that is desired. This art was developed in Japan and Asia by those seeking to enhance the beauty of their gardens. It was originally an art limited to the wealthy, although that has changed over the course of time.
