Translated as potted tree, bonsai are the attempt to represent larger natural tree forms in a diminutive scale. Nurturing such this micro environment over many years can be a wellspring of meditative pleasure

Water: Keep soil moist. The container is small so it can dry out quickly. A good method is to set the container in a dish with about an inch of water for about twenty minutes every few days.

Location: Keep your bonsai outdoors in a cool, but well lit location. If freezing weather threatens, cover to protect from frost, or bring indoors to a cool area with shade or filtered light.

Fertilizer: Use a water soluble potted plant fertilizer at half the suggested strength every 4-6 weeks from May to September
