While controlling the growing condition of a certain tree, it is known as the art of bonsai, which grows this tree in a smaller size in the same way as a normal tree grows. In other words, although these plants are allowed to grow in the same way as a normal tree grows in the art of bonsai, the size of these trees is limited to a tiny size without allowing them to grow too large.
Others think that bonsai is a separate type of tree. But if we really want, any type of tree can be changed and grown as a bonsai tree.
Others believe that this bonsai is genetically a type of dwarf tree. But it is actually wrong. If we like, we can even grow a giant tree from the seeds of this bonsai plant.
This art of bonsai started in China, and now we can see how the Japanese are very much engaged in this art. Information has also been revealed that this art of bonsai has been practiced since as far back as 1309.
How to grow a bonsai plant?
1. First, you need to decide whether you want to grow bonsai indoors or outdoors.
2. Then, you have to choose the plant you wish to grow when it is young and grow it in a regular pot until it grows quite a bit.
3. After this plant has grown a bit, it should be planted in a permanent pot as it will not be repotted.
4. Then think about the shape you want this plant to grow and cut the irrelevant branches and leaves.
5. And at this time, we need to tie the branches using wire to limit the growth.
6. After that, we have to remove the wire after the growth of the uncut branches is limited. Later, additional wire tying should be done to control further growth of the tree.
By controlling the growth of the tree in this way and after completely stopping the growth of branches, as a result, we create a bonsai tree.
