Bonsai Tree History
The origin of bonsai trees dates back to around two thousand years ago in ancient China.

Bonsai Tree Care
Watering the trees is the most important step that ensures healthy growth of the same. Water the bonsai daily. Depending on the season, fix the most suitable time of the day to do this task. Besides watering the pot, sprinkle water on the plant body and leaves--this allows unclogging of leave pores which have been clogged due to external pollutants.
Don't use pipes from which water flows at high speed, because the force tends to wash away the upper layer of the soil.
The nutrients and fertilizers used for the soil must be mild and natural--harsh, and artificial chemicals will destroy the plant. Prefer natural fertilizers like manures that do not lead to any side effects.
Pruning the tree is an essential step in maintaining its steady growth. Both, trimming of roots, and nipping of new buds is important.
