38 Bonsai Trees That Are a Perfect Tiny Version Of Nature

Growing bonsai trees is a delicate and serious hobby, definitely not for everyone. Yet, if you are a patient person who can give dedicate care and attention for a long period of time to this ancient horticultural practice, you will be rewarded with the amazing beauty of the miniature trees as you can see in the gallery.

The origin of bonsai is China where this tree growing technique was known as “penzai”. Later it was influenced by Japanese zen Buddhism into the form as we know it today. The key of this tree growing technique is strict control of conditions under which the plant is growing. Some of the techniques that bonsai masters use are pinching buds, pruning and wiring branches and restricting the use of fertiliser. To get a miniature version of an apple tree, for example, that can feet perfectly on your living room table requires a lot of time and delicate work along the way. But the one who is willing to put the effort in it is surely rewarded with exceptional beauty.

Check out in the gallery some of the extraordinary bonsai tree examples. Some of them are over 800 years old! Can you imagine that, generations and generations taking care of one tree…If you’re growing a bonsai tree yourself, please share with us the result of your work.
