Bonsai are trees and or plants grown in containers in such a way that it attracts people and absolutely much more beautiful compared to those that are in the wild. It is an artistic hobby to plant one. It is a good illustration of the gentle respect Japanese have for living things and the expression of beauty.
Looking back, the Japanese art of bonsai was originated from the Chinese practice of penjing. Bonsai is a “plantings in tray” from bon, a tray or a low-sided pot and sai, a planting. In English, bonsai is an umbrella term for all miniature trees in containers or pots. From Chinese tradition, eventually it became a Japanese art wherein it is a miniature trees grown in containers.
The main purpose of bonsai is for contemplation and pleasant exercise of effort and ingenuity. It is not intended for production of food, for medicine, or for creating landscapes.
