Bonsai trees are relatively low maintenance once they are grown. The actual act of growing a bonsai tree requires a tremendous amount of patience, almost three years of your time to cultivate it from seed to sapling. If you are taking care of a grown bonsai tree, it is easier with some light upkeep.
Since the word Bonsai translates to “a contained plant,” it is hard and almost impossible to find Bonsai trees in nature. The Bonsai tree originated in China and was adopted by many eastern cultures as a symbol of beauty. Bonsais are coniferous trees that originated from a few different species of tree.
