Grow Full Size Fruits In a Fraction Of The Area With Bonsai Trees

by Joe Battaglia

Bon sai is an art that has been practiced in Asia for many centuries. It isn’t genetically altered to make it smaller. Bonsai trees are grown from the same seeds as trees that grow to full size. They are grown in small containers and trimmed and trained so that they remain small and elegant. In this ancient technique, you typically grow the tree outdoors where it can experience the same growing conditions as a regular tree of the same species bearing full sized fruits in a fraction of the area.

Other differences include the faster growth rate of tropical plants, which accelerate all steps of the bonsai evolution.

The type of tree you grow should be reliant on the environment where you’ll be keeping it. Your region’s climate and your home environment should both be taken into account when you’re deciding which species of tree to grow. To be on the safe side, select a species that is indigenous to your part of the world.

Depending on the species of tree you grow, this could take up to five years. Many find the extra wait and effort to be worth it, since seeds are so inexpensive and the grower is able to control the tree at every stage of growth.
