The tree*in a pot is what bonsai stands for. A wonderful small tree*that is pleasant to look on. This small plant*is not genetically a dwarf plant but it is restrained to a certain height by root pruning, growing it in a confined pot, etc. So it's not a wonder to make any plant bonsai by some care and right methods. The most common methods to cultivate and grow bonsai are grafting, cutting, air layering, and from seed itself. Bonsai are classified according to different sizes :-*
1. Mame - tiny bonsai
2. Shohin - small bonsai
3. Kifu - medium bonsai
4. Dai/Daiza - large bonsai
The one more aspect while growing bonsai is how much water you should give to it? Give it in the right amount and don't let it dry. While some bonsai may sustain the periods of relative dryness while other require a good moisture. You should take care that watering too frequently, or allowing the soill to remain soggy can promote fungal infections and "root rot". A proper care must be taken for different types of bonsai to let it bloom. Greenery can make your health blossom. Keep yourself updated with all the* gardening information.

Hi there Admin im new here...
:DBonsai is a way of making small plants look like old, large trees. It is not a type of plant. Almost any plant can be used to make bonsai. Even plants that aren't trees. Small shrubs like miniature azalea make great bonsai.
Thanks for the information. I've always been interested in Bonsai's but I'm afraid that it wouldn't grow as intended. :)
I have a few Bonsai trees two I grew from seed the others I bought, I love the way they look and they are quite easy to care for as long as you remember that they are generally outdoor plants and treat them as so.
