We have always tried to amend nature, whether it is in terms of taming wild animals or constructing monolithic monuments. Similar approach has been also made in the field of agriculture. We have fought all odds to develop our desired crops, and mass produce the same as well.
But as in every field, we also tried to give a creative touch in the field of agriculture and gardening. One of those artistic approaches was developing dwarf variants of regular trees, which is known as Bonsai. The Japanese term “Bon Sai” refers to “planted in a container”.
The art of making Bonsai has been practiced in China since over 1000 years, and the earliest Japanese reference goes back to the Kasuga-gongen-genki (1309), a picture scroll by famous painter Takashina Takakane.
Keeping aside the long history, dwarf plants are great delight to watch and can contribute immensely towards increasing the ambiance of any room.
