As soon as you discover how easy to grow bonsai are,
your collection will start to grow. To start an indoor garden of trees, many growers recommend

been a Chinese elm bonsai
Hawaiian umbrella tree, because they don't require as much natural sunlight and do well in poor
lighting areas. Outdoor bonsai are best used as ornamental display
trees on your patio.

Very popular bonsai are Fukien tea trees,
these are used quite frequently in decorating, as a plant
for a kitchen or dining room table. Junipers and boxwood trees are
considered best for beginners. These are easy to shape into a unique style
that is your own.
As a beginner I started with a
cascading juniper bonsai, they are easy to
care for and prune. I found a Juniper on sale from an online
nursery that had a shape already started for me. After awhile I became more interested in
indoor bonsai, especially flowering plants, because of the beauty of
their blossoms. I was also quite interested in feng shui and how it related to plants and trees
in the home.
Buying a Japanese bonsai tree as a beginner and learning to
shape the tree properly, was easier than I thought. I am now starting to take my own cuttings
and learning how to grow my own, it was easier
than starting with seeds. I now sell my specimens at garage sales.
If you don't have a suitable place to grow
buy a tree specifically recommended
for indoors. The most popular is
Hawaiian umbrella tree which have tiny umbrella shaped
leaves or a
Brazilian rain tree which has leaves that fold up at
night, which looks very cool.
