What Is a Bonsai?
The goal is to produce a tree, in miniature, that resembles its counterpart in nature, within the bounds of a pot. This tree is trained and treated in this way; its final opinion is that of an aged tree. There are bonsai that because of the training over several years, are considered family heirlooms, passed down from generation to generation.
Four most Common Fashions of the Bonsai
Upright: There is the formal and informal upright. Both have one trunk, which tapers to the top and is wider at the bottom. These types are often present in nature and are great styles for newcomers to begin with. The trunk needs to be visible from the base to the top. While the formal style has a straight trunk, the trunk of the informal fashion is allowed to twist and turn. Popular choice sources for these two fashions would be the juniper, pine, spruce with all the maple added for the fashion that is casual. These fashions are often put small diameter pot, in a round.
Slanting: Nature, notably the wind, frequently has a hand in the configuration of trees. The slanting design leans to one side at about 60-80 degrees to the foundation. Consistently have the first branch projecting opposite the way the trunk is leaning. There may be slight twisting of the trunk or it might be straight. The above mentioned species can be utilized, but the conifer is typically the most popular. A shallow depth pot with a bigger dimension is wanted here.
Cascade: Such as the vertical there are two versions, the Semi- cascade and the Cascade. Is bent down over time in the components, where these styles will be found in nature. The training for both demands wiring to generate the cascade effect. The total cascade style uses the bonsai and a tall pot is trained to go below the bottom of the pot as time passes. Creating this continuous down development takes patience and persistence, as it's not natural for the growth of a tree. The semi- it isn't allowed to extend below the underparts of the the pot and cascade would be put in a pot that is not quite as tall. The juniper adapts nicely for this training and these forms. A flowering species employed for the cascade fashions comprise azalea, the, cotoneaster and pyracantha.
