Plant care best practices
Bonsai are miniature plants which have been shaped and trimmed in a manner so that the plants look the same but have a unique small appearance. It is hard work and sometimes it takes many years to shape a plant in bonsai. All plants cannot be shaped in bonsai. Thus care needs to be taken of them. Keep the tree in shade inside the house. Covered places near windows are ideal. Avoid direct sunlight. The plant needs to be watered in small quantities and also given fertilizers once a month in small quantities.
