Growing Bonsai Trees

During the last couple of years we can see more and more flower shops selling the bonsai trees primarily coming from China or Japan. Unfortunately, many of those trees die in those shops, so very few reach its final destination – someone’s home.

I’ve been in contact with many nature lovers who bought some kind of a bonsai tree. So this is the most common question: “How do I keep my bonsai tree from dying?

Unfortunately, most of the nature lovers end up being disappointed soon after they’ve purchased their first bonsai. One of the reasons is, if you ask me, many florists don’t have enough knowledge of bonsai, and not to mention determining a type or its specific needs.

That is somewhat logical because most of those trees grew in the wild, and come from tropical areas, and people aren’t familiar enough with it. On the other hand, if we’re talking about pine trees or maples that grow around us, well, then ther’s no real excuse for not knowing the basics of growing bonsai trees.
