Choosing the Right Bonsai Tree
Decorating your home with Bonsai trees is a good way to add some aesthetic, botanical presence to your home. Bonsai trees have originated in Japan. This is an art which includes the formation of miniature trees using small containers or tubs. This is also known as a pot-plant culture. The tradition of making Bonsai trees is around a thousand years old and the basic aesthetic function is still the same. Selecting a tree for bonsai includes choosing trees that are suitable to be limited in growth. Many people recommend starting with a basic Bonsai tree like the Juniper. It is relatively easy to maintain. They can be planted and respond fairly well to a lot of training methods. You can find it easier to grow a Juniper tree because of its acclimatization to Northern temperature as well as a couple of temperate regions too. Since the Juniper tree is evergreen throughout the year it can have a pleasing aesthetic presence.
If you choose to upgrade your tree choice for Bonsai you can go with deciduous trees, cedars and even pines. Another factor to consider while choosing a bonsai tree would be if you wish to keep the plant inside or outside. This is an important factor because this can affect your tree choice to a great extent. For example if you want to place the tree inside then you can choose Ficus, Kingswood Boxwood, and even Camelia. For outdoor décor, you can consider trees like the Elm, Cedar, Cypress, Gingo etc. Juniper trees can be grown both inside and outside if proper care is taken.
