Table of Contents Introduction Knowing More about Your Bonsai Best Choices of Bonsai Plant Varieties Dwarfing Your Plants Artificially Root pruning and shaping of your Bonsai Some Tips and Tricks Maintenance and Care Of Your Bonsai The Rule of Thumb While Deciding When to Water Your Bonsai Pot bound bonsais [repotting when necessary] Collecting a natural bonsai in the Wild Collecting Trip Equipment Another Procedure – 3 Year Method for Potential Bonsais Conclusion Author Bio Publisher Introduction I was about nine years old when I read about bonsais – miniature trees, in the Encyclopaedia Britannica. At that time, 70s and the Britannica volumes had been published in the 50s, this particular encyclopedia had a tendency of abbreviating the descriptions and the knowledge about anything about which they knew nothing! So as nobody was there to tell them about me nature plants and miniature shrubs, which were so common in the mysterious East and Oriental Gardens, they had just written about two paragraphs about them. So I went to the source of more information, father and asked him to elucidate. He immediately explained that bonsai was the Japanese name given to plants, which were fully grown trees, but were miniature. He also explained about little orange trees, which were about 12 to 18 inches in size and were laden with orange fruit. This was very fascinating. We needed bonsais in our garden, I and my younger brother. Like right now.
