Bonsai's at Color Your World Nurseries Las Cruces, NM.
Bonsai trees are actually plants that are in a tray. The soil is packed and small rocks placed on top. They need more care and attention than regular indoor decor plants. They are heavily pruned to give it that dwarf look. Bonsai's are done mostly by making the trunks and branches through pruning and wiring. Almost anyone can learn how to do this with a few hours of basic instruction from a teacher or by reading books. You can eventually become a professional bonsai maker.
Fertilizing bonsai should only be done about half strength of the usual fertilizers. You should also keep an eye on watering your bonsai...you should water more frequently during the hot summer months.
