Bonsai For Beginners



Cómo hacer un Bonsai? parte 1 (Muy fácil!)





The more familiar you are with the quirks of any piece of equipment you use, the more efficient you are at using the item. This is particularly important for those who have to tend to a lot of plants. The more bonsai one owns, the more time is saved by not having to fight with poor quality gear. When you are buying through a bonsai sale, most of the goods being sold will be a year old, possibly several years old. 

Removing dirt and keeping your bonsai clean is vital to promote good health of the tree. A final aspect of bonsai care, that many beginners are not aware of, is learning when the proper time to prune and pot the tree is at. Each species of tree is different, and depending on when your tree is dormant and active is when you will prune your plant. 

Leaf trimming and pruning are typically used to maintain the appearance and health of the tree, while wiring, clamping, grafting, defoliation and deadwood are methods used to enhance the overall style and design of the bonsai. Each of these methods needs to be performed with care, as your bonsai trees can be killed if you over prune, over trim, or otherwise critically damage the root and structure of the bonsai trees. 

While it is becoming a trend to grow bonsai plants indoors, it is important that you select a type of tree that is able to flourish under those conditions. For example, the juniper is a type of bonsai that does not usually do well indoors. They require a dormancy period, where they are kept at colder temperatures and are permitted to rejuvenate. 

If your tree becomes sick, you will learn the best treatment methods to prevent your tree from dying. There are many facets to bonsai tree care, all of which can be learned with effort, experience and time. If you are interested in bonsai tree care and do not want to learn through experimentation, there are a lot of resources available to you. 

Typically grown outdoors, these trees provide a dazzling display of color in the spring and fall, while providing a natural beauty in the winter months. These trees are typically considered delicate, requiring a certain style of care in order to properly endure. For example, like many other bonsai, the maple bonsai must be replanted once every year or two, dependent on the type of maple that you have.
