Bonsai plants are grown in shallow containers, resembling scale-models of mature trees in nature. Bonsai need sunlight, air movement, water, nutrients and a substrate in which to grow. The art of involves styling, training and pruning a living tree to the shape you want, then matching it to a complementary container to create the desired overall effect. Bonsai Island teaches that Bonsai is not about the age of the tree, per se, it is about the artistry and beauty of the design.
