One of the fastest ways to jump to the formation of bonsai to buy a tree pre-bonsai plants or plant nursery. You can find pre-bonsai online at the link at the bottom of this page, while nursery plants can be purchased at your local nursery plant store. We do this a couple of times a year to create a bonsai in a very short time. By acquiring the tree or shrub, set to the desired style and let it recover. This is as easy as it gets, as long as the right plant to start is selected. This step by step guide will show you how to choose the perfect candidate bonsai.

  1. The first thing to look for in creating a bonsai tree values ​​is the plant species. You want to ensure that the plant is suitable for the formation of bonsai. Most trees and shrubs are suitable, but it is important to do some research first.
  2. Look at the size of the tree. You can not go into a nursery and buy a 10 ‘Japanese maple with the goal of making it a bonsai; simply will not work.
  3. Now start looking at the characteristics of the plant, starting with the trunk. Choose a plant that has a truck that can be styled in a style of bonsai. You have to predict the outcome at this point.
  4. Then look at the narrowing of the trunk. Almost all styles of bonsai require the trunk to decrease from thick on the bottom to thin at the top. You do not want the plant to be thick to a point that was cut. This will make the end result is unnatural and rushed.
  5. see the structure of nearby tree branch. Look where the branches are, what direction to go, and if they are tapered. Chances are pruning some branches so that not all have to be perfect. Just make sure you have a few that you can work with them.
  6. The last thing to consider is “nabari” or the root crown and surface roots. The point where the trunk meets the ground is essential to make the bonsai look natural. You want this looks very natural, with shallow roots that appear at the base if possible.
