A bonsai tree is a miniature tree that is planted within a container. In fact, the term “bonsai” literally means “planted in a container” in Japanese.

Bonsai refers to the art of cultivating these small trees and is an integral part of Japanese culture dating back to the early 14th century. Once enjoyed by only the wealthiest aristocrats and high-ranking members of Japanese society, bonsai is now an art form that is enjoyed by people from all around the world.

Three things to remember when caring for your bonsai:

Positioning: Your bonsai should be kept away from direct heat or draft.
Lighting: Keep your bonsai in area with plenty of sunlight.
Humidity: Bonsais need humidity in order to keep their soil moist.

Bonsai trees love sunlight. Place in a south facing window. Insert your finger about an inch down into the soil and leave it there for 20 seconds. If the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch, go ahead and water it. If it feels wet or even damp, your bonsai doesn’t need to be watered now.
