How to Create Bonsai from Regular Trees

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.
