If you have ever wondered how to make your own bonsai with regular trees, this video will show you the way. If you work a tree heavily, like this guy is doing, and then immediately re-pot it, you’re going to almost certainly kill the tree. You should wait about a year before re-potting a heavily worked tree. I’m sure this guy knows that and just wanted to give a demonstration of what the whole process of starting a new bonsai involves. You can find lots of starter trees for way less than $50. People new to bonsai should understand that you are probably going to kill some trees as you learn the art. Don’t blow a lot of money on something expensive. Accidentally killing it will discourage you from learning a beautiful art form.
