Bonsai is a very complex and engrossing hobby and the plants require intensive attention and careful daily care as well as continuous training. Individual requirements will vary depending on each plant, it species and its stage in training and growth as well. I could not begin to give you full instructions in a paragraph or two! You might wish to look at a book or two about bonsai or possibly
the American Bonsai Society, c/o Patricia DeGroot, P.O.
Box 1136, Puyallup, WA 98371-1136, (206) 841-8992;
web site: They have several
publications available to help you learn to care for your
bonsai. You might also find some helpful information through
the Internet Bonsai Club web site. I hope this
