Spring is fast approaching and the leaves are soon going to turn green. Growing Bonsai Trees is a great spring hobby and though it looks like its difficult to grow, it really isn't.You can make it a smooth, beautiful and fulfilling journey if you get your hands around a few tips.
My family and I have raised Bonsai Trees since I was little and now, as a graduate student in the Northwestern University Medill IMC program, I have found two interesting and relevant articles on how to grow Bonsai Trees with great results.
We came across this amazing website called www.grow-a-bonsai.com where they take the readers through the nitty-gritties of Bonsai cultivation. This amazing how-to from Grow-a-bonsai tells you exactly what you should do, when and how! It talks about where you start, your source and what method is better to select your bonsai. The article also leads you through watering and the best methods to water. We also learned that placement is significant and often nutrition and hydration are of no use if the placement is not correct. From Pruning to Repotting to fertilizing all your questions will be answered.
- Placement is Critical – A healthy bonsai tree needs 4 hours of direct sunlight everyday for it to flourish so place them in the sun a few hours everyday.
- Nutrition is Pivotal – Soil is food for your Bonsai hence the nutrition in the soil helps the plant grow better, fuller and prettier. Addition of fiber such as Rice husk, goat-shit and coco-peat adds additional nutrients in the soil and helps the absorption of the plant.
- The Importance of Water – Lack of water is extremely detrimental to the plant. Daily watering is necessary and incase of absence it is advisable to leave the plant in a tray filled with water to ensure that it doesn't dry the roots.
