    Hey folks!
    I was thinking of growing a bonsai tree for my desk. I recognise there are any different varieties of bonsai, so if anyone knows anything about it then advice would be much appreciated. Bear in mind Ive never grown bonsai before, (hence the title).

    Thanks in advance =D

    I've killed one before
    But I have two that are doing really good. That reminds me, I need to buy bigger dishes for them...

    Anyway, I can't help you with species or anything, I just bought mine from homebase :p: However, I can tell you, they require a lot of work! Constant watering but careful not to over water. And get some of that bonsai food stuff, its really good. And be sure to trim it often, this makes it bushier.

    No wonder, you're killing the poor beauty.

    OP, what do you want to know about it? I've not got one, but i do like to read up on them, so know a few things. I've wanted to purchase one for years, the few that i did like were too damn expensive.

    I used to have a bonsai. Called Boris. But he died .
    Now I have Colin the cactus, who is a few years old now.
    Yes, I name them . But it's easier than calling them 'the cactus' etc.
    I'm very strange.

    I've never tried, but I've heard they require a lot of care. The replies confirm that too.

    If all else fails, bamboo plants are pretty.

    You say they require alot of hard work and constant care. If I fed and watered them every day would they be ok? Like they wont die while im at school or anything?
    Oh and are thye sensitive to heat? The weather where I live is very changeable.
    Thankyou for all replies so far!

    And no I wont smoke bonsai leaves! x]

    Agreed, bamboos are lovely. I've got one and want another bigger one. I also want a cactus and Aloe vera plant. :yep:
