Bonsai

Bonsai is a Japanese art form which utilizes cultivation techniques to produce, in containers, small trees that mimic the shape and scale of full size trees. The Japanese tradition dates back over a thousand years. The Japanese loanword “bonsai” has become an umbrella term in English, attached to many forms of potted or other plants, and also on occasion to other living and non-living things. In the most restrictive sense, “bonsai” refers to miniaturized, container-grown trees adhering to Japanese tradition and principles.
