Bonsai Pots

As we all know growing up a bonsai is an art, the focus is not only the main product in this case plant but also the surrounding which makes the central thing look even better. You should remember that pot is not only a frame of a bonsai it is part of the whole thing.

There are many types of bonsai pots. The most usual ones are ceramic bonsai pots and mica bonsai pots, they can be found in many shapes: rectangular, oval, rounded, octagon, dished and probably the best looking separated water-land pot. The best pots are all hand made and are made by the ancient Chinese standards. When you are choosing the right color for your pot you should also be aware of the fact that the color of leafs changes and so does the visual connection between pot and the tree.

So what looks good in summer months may not look appealing in winter months. Usual width or diameter of a pot should be similar to the area that is taken by the branches. This does not totally apply to water-land pots where pots should be wider. Water-land pots are the most unusual but probably the best looking ones. These pots are divided in the middle and on the one side filled with soil and on the other with water.

The good thing besides looking really good is that water part of the pot will provide extra humidity which can be really good for some species, not so much for the others. You should also always be careful when you are supplying water, because if water part of the pot is overfilled it may spill to soil, causing it to be wet, which may also not be good for a bonsai.

The Japanese Art of Growing the Indoor Bonsai Tree

Growing the indoor bonsai tree is actually the Japanese art form of cultivating miniature trees. These trees are very similar to their larger counterparts with the exception that they are grown in pots and the constant pruning does not allow them to reach full size, making it an indoor bonsai tree.

The art of growing these trees is thought to have originated in ancient China, where men who were healers would grow plants for medicinal purposes. In early times the main purpose was to display trunks in the shape of animals and mystic figures. Somewhere between the 7th and 9th century, this art form was introduced to the Japanese culture.

There are many types of bonsai, including formal and informal upright, cascade, raft, literati, semi-cascade and forest. The Tree is available at a range of nurseries in various stages of growth, from seeds to the fully mature indoor Bonsai Tree.

As an alternative, you can choose to grow it from seeds. Usually you can purchase kits to grow them; these kits usually include, a particular kind of seed, a small pot, a little bag of fertilizer and soil, a drain sheet as well as information to help you get started. The different kits will provide you with different instructions, depending on the type of indoor Bonsai Tree you are trying to grow. It is important to follow these instructions for the best possible growth.

Watering them correctly is essential to successfully growing them. Watch the moisture in the soil carefully to ensure that it does not get too wet, or too dry. If you live in a warm climate, it is even more important that you keep a close eye on the soil's moisture.
