Many members of the community Facades World have been fascinated with mini-trees, for this very reason today we decided to teach them how to make a bonsai Step by Step. So if you are interested and want to know how to achieve it, do not move from the screen because we are starting right now!
How to make a bonsai - Learn everything you need before you start
This word of Japanese origin has a peculiar meaning, since "bon" means tray, and "sai" means cultivate. Today we will teach you how to make a bonsai step by step so get settled in, wash your hands and pay close attention to the following… let's see.
1. Choose our bonsai
First of all we have to choose the right tree for us, something that seems simple but often is not, since it must adapt to our climate. If we are starting out in this beautiful ancient technique, we suggest using juniper, one of the most resistant trees since they respond well to pruning and are easy to grow. Other options that we have available may be pine trees.
2. Inside or outside
After having our tree we must decide if we will have it in the interior o Exterior of our home. If we are going to leave it outside we suggest using a cedar or a birch if it is a gardenia or a camellia inside.
We must take into account the size of the same since they can go from 15cm to 90cm. That is why we must take into account the space we have at home, the size of the container, the sunlight and the time we are going to invest in our tree.
We must choose a tree that allows us to prune it and that the pot matches the parameters that we choose in our tree to be able to grow it. If we choose an adult tree we must make sure that it has been pruned as we planned and the best time to transplant them is in spring. Another recommendation is that the soil is dry and loose as it is easier to handle than when it is wet.
5. Dry the tree
We must clean the roots so that they are clear enough so that we can see well what we do while we can. After this step we have our bonsai ready to pass it to our pot with a good base of fresh soil and finish planting our tree.
Once we have planted our tree we must leave it, for at least two weeks, protected from the sun and rain.
