Are you planning to redecorate your home this spring? If you are planning to do some home redecoration, you
might want to consider adding some bonsai plants as part of your home décor.
There are different types of bonsai trees that you can use to decorate your home. To help
you find the right types of bonsai trees, here are some pointers for you.
Types Of Bondsai Trees -Stay Away From Exotic Plant Species
Many people complain that certain types of bonsai trees do not stay alive for long. This is quite
understandable considering the fact that different types of bonsai tress thrive in different types of weather and
environmental conditions. Exotic types of bonsai trees will not last more than a few days if you put them in the
wrong climate condition. Since you are still new to bonsai culture, you should be very careful when it comes to
selecting types of bonsai plants.
As much as possible, you should stir away from those exotic species of bonsai plants. Yes, exotic plant species
are good but they are difficult to maintain and if you do not have the time and the right skills to care for exotic
plant species, you might as well forget about growing those types of plants. There is really no point of wasting
your money on these types of plants if you cannot keep them alive for more than a few days. Instead of buying
exotic types of bonsai trees, stick to those endemic plant species. You will have better chances of keeping these
types of plant species alive.
Go For Smaller And Easier To Grow Species Of Trees
If you are planning to put your bonsai trees indoor, you should go for smaller and easier to grow types of
bonsai trees. For instance, the fig or the ficus tree is easy to grow indoors. It does not need a lot of sunlight
and it can withstand a lot of watering. When it comes to exotic species, the classic Chinese elm tree is suitable
indoors. This type of tree is hardy and can withstand a lot of pruning and training. Many people all over the world
prefer this type of bonsai tree because it is very trainable. On the other hand, the Himalayan cedar is also good
for indoor growing. This type of tree can grow to as much as six inches tall only when you put it in the right
environment and you prune it regularly.
