Green Thumb Tip: When watering using the overhead watering method, always mist the surface before applying water from overhead or too much runoff will occur.

Bonsai trees date back to the year 600 A.D. in China. They were known to the Chinese as Penjing, meaning “planting on a low pot,” and were reserved only for nobles and priests. In the 19th century, they were given the name of “bonsai” by the Japanese who adapted the tradition. The Japanese consider the bonsai a meditative practice and regarded the bonsai as a reflection of its owner.
