Bonsai Plant Care

Bonsai represents the artistic use of gardening techniques to develop a tree into a miniaturized version of its counterpart in nature. Bonsai is not a specific type of tree; rather many types of trees go through the gardening process of bonsai.

Should be kept in a well-lighted place, sheltered from the direct rays of the summer sun, the majority of the time. Such diverse locations as a garden, an open balcony, a patio, by a pool, a roof garden, or nestled comfortably on a ledge near an open window in a home can allow your tree to be exposed to the sun, wind, and rain that it needs in order to thrive.

Bring inside the house as a decoration for a few days at a time. However, one should not hope to keep bonsai indoors at all times. The best scheme for a bonsai location is to keep the bonsai outside Monday through Friday where it gets good exposure to nature, then on Saturday and Sunday bring your bonsai inside and place it wherever you like as long as it is not placed directly in the path of a heating or air conditioning vent.
