My first real plant was a bonsai I got from a neighbor that moved away. She, nor I knew what kind of tree it was. With this plant, my attenting for growing really began to take a sprint. I was just fascinated with growing just about anything and seeing what 'I' can make out of a seed with 'my' care. After moving around and struggling a bit my tree seemed to of had enough of the stress and decided it's life was over sorta say.
After, I have always found bonsai to be intriguing and always wanted to learn more of the art.
I have had some herb plants, flowers, etc..etc.
Right now I have a basil plant in container ( 1 gallon I belive) and it seems to be doing pretty good. Thanks to this site, I found how to best maintain it, and and keet him/her ( I don't know, I love the fact that plants are a living organism and well, 'ya know how some guys call their cars, their 'girls', well, I'm kinda that with plants witch seems to be more realistic..heh)
Anyway, back to the subject.
I know I will have to do some practicing, and reading about growing a new bonsai from seed, and I have no problem getting some ebooks on bonsai. In fact, I already have one but there is tons out there (any you reccomend)
What would be a easy, practical way to grow a bonsai? What type of tree should I use for lower maintence and a easier way to begin?
I have no clue where to get any seeds, and I will be most defenitly groing indoors as I am in the west suburbs of Chicago and winter is coming up. So does anyone have any tips. I cant really think of anything else to type so I will put something up when I have a question...so in the mean time, what do you have to say?
