Bonsai

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Amy Renea added this to Make the Most of a Small Garden
A bonsai garden is a great option for a deck. The plants grow very slowly and look charming in a shelved display. The best part? This entire garden takes up only a few feet.
If you decide to grow bonsai, do set aside a space outdoors to display and grow your works of living art. Like any collection, they are especially pleasing to the eye when grouped together. Bonsai can be planted in a variety of containers, though the low rectangular tray is traditionally used to create the appearance of growing out of the ground. Beautiful green moss or pebbles covering the soil add beauty to the composition and give these miniature trees an almost irresistible allure.Bonsai CareTemperature: This is species specific, and trees that require a cool dormancy period such as maples, larch, pines and junipers will not live indoors without this necessary period in their yearly cycle.Light: Light requirements are species dependent, though most bonsai species need bright light.Water: Species dependent, and can require dry, moist or wet soil. For subtropical or tropical species, allow the soil to become drier during their winter rest period, and begin watering normally when active growth resumes.Soil: Loose, and fast draining, bonsai mix for the specific varietyFeeding: According to needs of specific bonsai tree, though most bonsai species will appreciate fertilizerRepotting: Generally necessary to maintain a bonsai, and must occur at certain time intervals according to the growth pace and plant age. Many bonsais require re-potting once a year.Tools: Special tools are available for specific bonsai maintenance, such as trimming and shapingBonsai Shopping TipsWith traditional conifer species, the trunk should be thicker at the bottom and taper toward the top. Avoid plants with scars; the trunk should be smooth.If the roots of the plant are visible, they should be securely anchored in the container with no protruding sections.Look for needles or foliage that are dense, glossy and bright with no shriveled or dried-out areas.Choose a bonsai that is growing in the center of the pot, unless the pot is large enough to account for an imbalance that could cause a small pot to fall over easily.More: See more examples of bonsai in the Products section
4. Utilise old shelvingDisplay your favourite plants proudly in colourful pots to add personality to your space. Fall in love with bonsai plants; they grow slowly, and provide a low-maintenance garden option for busy city professionals.
