Bonsai refers to an ornamental shrub or tree that’s placed in a pot to stunt its growth. It is artificially dwarfed for the purpose of using it as a decorative element in the house or garden.
If you’d like to try your hand in growing a bonsai tree, one of the first things you have to learn is its water requirements. Once a week (or whenever the topsoil looks dried up), submerge the plant in a bucket of water. Don’t remove the plant until you see air bubbles come to the top. This is the sign that the bonsai has absorbed sufficient water. This is just one of the many care requirements of bonsai trees that you need to learn about.
