Bonsai ~ The Art and Science of Illusion

Bonsai (A tree (bon) in a tray/pot (sai))pronounced bonsai (bone-sigh), is the technique of creating an illusion; using cultivation practices like pruning, wiring, root reduction, defoliation (removing all of the leaves), potting and perhaps grafting.  The illusion being attempted is that of a large, natural looking tree that has been captured and planted in a small container. It can be grown from seeds, plant cuttings, purchased in a nursery pot, or collected from the yard, hillside or field.

Bonsai is both a science (horticulture) and an art (sculpting).  Perhaps that is why it appeals to so many people.  Whether they become interested because of the mystique of a tree, or they want to challenge themselves with a new form of growing things, the bonsai tree tends to draw people in.
