Description

In the simplest form, Bonsai is the Japanese art form of growing and training miniature trees in pots. The art form of Bonsai attempts to grow these small trees to resemble a tree much larger and more mature by mimicking the shape and style of the species of tree selected. The art form consists of techniques that can take a lifetime to master which include pruning, using wire to train branches into shape, root trimming, defoliation, and grafting and contorting the main stem into twisted and weeping shapes.

Pruning often sits at the heart of owning a Bonsai and can be the most enjoyable part of owning the plant. It is also essential to maintain the shape and more importantly the health of the plant.

It is worth investing in a proper pair of Bonsai pruning scissors and creating an area where you can prune. You should be able to see the tree from all angles to really tune into the shape of the plant to give it that natural look, this is when the art form really starts to show itself.

You should always try to trim back overly long new shoots either completely or back to just a couple of leaves. It is important to maintain gaps between branches and not allow the plant to become overrun or bushy; this will hinder airflow and lead to pests, diseases, and powdery mildew.

Pruning should be done regularly and should almost be a meditative practice, learning to see the ancient tree within the young sapling.
