Bonsai is a Japanese art form that utilizes miniature trees grown in containers, dating back more than a thousand years.
Bonsai serves a double purpose – viewers can enjoy contemplating the sight of such a small tree, while the grower takes joy from the ingenuity and effort that goes into maintaining such a plant. It emphasizes long-term care of a small tree, asking for regular grooming and maintenance, rather than the growth of food. ProFlowers has begun to offer a wide variety of Bonsai plants – if you or a loved one is interested in this art form, you’ll be pleased to know that there are a number of different plants that you can start with. Perhaps the best point for a beginner to start at would be the Ultimate Bonsai Kit. This set comes with a three-year-old juniper bonsai that stands between six and eight feet high. A pair of Bonsai clippers are provided, as is a humidity tray, a small container of fertilizer and a Bonsai 101 book for the absolute novice. This is a great gift for someone who enjoys tinkering or otherwise working on the fine details of things.
For best results, it’s recommended that the plant be placed outdoors so that it can receive full sunlight. There are several other blooms available if someone you know already practices Bonsai. The Azalea Bonsai plant arrives at your door still budded so that you or a loved one can watch it grow right before your eyes. This plant is relatively easy to care for and makes for a charming outdoor accessory. Care instructions are provided for anyone nervous about damaging it, however. A ten-inch ponytail palm tree brings a certain tropical flair to the practice of Bonsai, which usually incorporates eastern foliage. The Ponytail Palm Bonsai tree arrives in a beautiful glazed ceramic pot between five and six years old. This is a tree that is both easy to care for and very rewarding to watch grow. Best of all, online florists guarantee on-time shipments, so you don’t have to worry about your package arriving late to its destination. No more having to wait in anticipation for your package – simply specify an arrival date and you’ll know exactly when it will get there!
