Bonsai trees are amazing.
In the past, it felt like Bonsai trees were only available in exclusive and beautiful Japanese gardens, but today it seems everyone can buy their own. Even IKEA seems to keep a few on hand.
Freely translated, Bonsai means “small pot trees” and they certainly are beautiful plants, encouraging patience and dedication. Some use Bonsai trees to relieve stress as well as help clean the air.
For over 1,000 years, people have been crazy about these mini-trees. The tradition started in China, and Buddhist monks eventually brought the art of cultivating the trees to Japan.
The trees remain small due to growth-limiting techniques such as cutting buds, pruning and branching of branches, as well as limiting the use of fertilizers.
It’s a sensitive and time-consuming process, but as you can see in the list below, the end result can be magical!
