Japanese term for the art of cultivating and training a plant to create the illusion of a dwarfed tree. Bonsai is a Japanese word made up of two characters or word phrases, "bon" and "sai". Bon is pronounced as the English word "bone", and means pot, container or tray. Sai is pronounced as the English word "sigh" and means tree or plant in Japanese.
The art of growing carefully trained, dwarf plants in containers.
From the Japanese words, "bon" and "sai" meaning "pot" and "plant." Bonsai, however is much more than simply a pot in a plant. There are numerous styles of bonsai, all which have different criteria for evaulation. The goal of bonsai is to create the appearance of great size and age. This is accomplished by create a bonsai with strong rootage (nebari) that extends in all directions, creating a sense of stability, a large trunk which tapers as it goes upward, a clear apex, and well formed and well placed branches. These features all combine to create a careful blend of symmetry, balance and proportion. It also must be displayed in a pot which harmonizes well with the plant material.
Bonsai (, literally "container planted". ), is the art of aesthetic miniaturization of trees by growing them in containers. While mostly associated with the Japanese form, "bonsai" originated in China and was originally developed from Chinese penjing. In Western culture, the word "bonsai" is used as an umbrella term for Japanese bonsai, Chinese penjing, and Korean bunjae.
