Robert Steven: Premna microphylla (small leaves) grafted on Premna serratifolia stump to obtain better foliage proportion and ramification structure...

Combining different line characters into one integrated design in bonsai is a big challenge to obtain good harmony....

If there is anything "disturbing" you, mean I succeed to evoke you... :) #Bonsai

+Google+  I have tried, and tried, and tried again... Still my custom url options dont make sense. My name is "Bonsai Empire" and when I choose this it says I need to add a suffix. So I would have to make it "/bonsaiempire2" ? Really?
After over a year of giving this feedback, almost weekly, still never heard anything about this.

What can I do?

So sad to hear that waiting is the only option... I just dont get how the algorithm gets it so wrong, isnt it obvious that "bonsaiempire" is a unique name...? :(

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! :)
