How To Make A Bonsai
Beginners and students often share the same concern, about growing and maintaining a healthy plant from a kit. Your main goal is to control the amount of stress that your plant will take and still remain healthy. It comes down to too much or too little when it applies to all aspects to Bonsai culture, including air, water, soil, sun, nutrients, temperature, altitude and pruning.
Anyone wanting to make a bonsai tree from a supply kit successfully, must have patience and a willingness to experiment and then accept the results. I don’t mean buying a bunch of books, it has more to do with learning as you go and not being afraid to try something different to give your bonsai your own personal touch.
