What Exactly Is a Bonsai?
The aim is always to generate a tree, in tiny, that resembles its counterpart in nature, within the boundaries of a pot. This tree is trained and treated in this manner; its final feeling is that of an aged tree. There are bonsai that because of their training over several years, are considered family heirlooms, passed down from generation to generation.
Four most Common Styles of the Bonsai
Upright: There's the formal and informal upright. Both have a single trunk, which tapers to the top and is broader in the bottom. These forms tend to be present in nature and so are good styles for beginners to start with. The trunk has to be observable from the foundation to the top. The trunk of the informal style is permitted to twist and turn while the formal style has a straight trunk. Popular choice sources for both these styles are the juniper, pine, spruce together with the maple added for the informal style. These fashions are regularly put in a round, little diameter pot.
Slanting: Nature, especially the wind, often has a hand in the formation of trees. The slanting style leans to a side at about 60-80 degrees to the base. Always have the first branch projecting opposite the way the trunk is leaning. There may be little twisting of the trunk or it might be straight. The above-mentioned species may be used, but the conifer is the most used. A shallow depth pot using a larger dimension is desired here.
Cascade: Just like the vertical there are two variants, the Semi- cascade and also the Cascade. Is bent down over time in the components where these designs will be found in nature. The training for both requires wiring to produce the cascade effect. The full cascade style runs on the tall pot as well as the bonsai is trained to extend below the bottom of the pot as time passes. Creating this consistent downward growth takes patience and persistence, as it's not natural for the growth of a tree. The semi- cascade would be place in a pot which is not exactly as tall and it isn't allowed to go below the bottom of the pot. The juniper adapts nicely to these forms and this training. A flowering species used for the cascade styles include the, azalea, cotoneaster and pyracantha.

Multi-trunk: The multi- trunk has one main trunk, and smaller trunks forming in the side. There are also the species such as the arboricola which are used to recreate the banyan tree that's atmosphere roots extending to the bottom. Over time the atmosphere roots become trunk-like. Another specimen is the ficus tree. The multi-trunk fashions can be planted on a level stone surface. You will find those planted on a real stone and also trained to grow from inside a crack in a rock. The stone for this latter group, in placed in a shallow round pot. All these types have training procedures and their different names.
