This wonderful Bonsai was on display at the Stourbridge Bonsai society club members display, Winter show 2016. Unfortunately artist unknown due to the tags only showing the specimen, not the owner. Picture by Andy Baker #bonsai

+Edgar González It's a bit difficult, but possible. Depending on just how tropical, how hot and cold it gets etc.
I'm living in Queensland Australia now, with hot summers and not very cold or long winters.
And it's always a bit difficult. They don't go dormant well in winter etc.
But I manage to grow several species such as Japanese black pine quite well.
There's other Pines that are more well suited to the climate too, but not necessarily as well suited for bonsaï culture.
Japanese White Pines are probably about the hardest to grow here. Especially collected specimens.
Which is a shame cause I like them.

Such a stunning Bonsai tree. Old gnarly trunk and beautiful flowers, and the pot contrasts the colors in a unique way. Photo by Ming Ty. Do you like it? #Bonsa #bonsaitree

Learn to grow and care for Bonsai trees and get inspired by stunning images!
Introduction
The word ‘Bon-sai’ is Japanese and it means ‘planted in a container’. As a Japanese art form it is deeply rooted in Zen Buddhism and exists for well over a thousand years. The ultimate goal of growing a bonsai tree is to create a miniaturized but realistic depiction of nature, using techniques such as pruning and wiring.

Although the word ‘Bon-sai’ is Japanese, the art it describes originated in the Chinese empire.  By the year 700 AD the Chinese had started the art of ‘pun-sai’ using special techniques to grow dwarf trees in containers.  Originally only the elite of the society practiced pun-tsai with native-collected specimens and the trees where spread throughout China as luxurious gifts. During the Kamakura period, the period in which Japan adopted most of China’s cultural trademarks, the art of growing trees in containers was introduced into Japan.


On this page we will regularly post new galleries, news and more. We also keep a top 10 of the greatest bonsai trees that we know of; check it out! :)
