Bonsai is an artform that requires years of training, and centuries of dedication. At the 2012 International bonsai Convention a tree was on sale for one hundred million yen, just under a million dollars. And many more of these trees are considered completely priceless. So what is it that makes these trees so expensive?

No, no, no, wrong, no, false, irrelevant, no. It is just bonsai which translates to "PLANT IN A POT". From here on you can develop to yourself. Sure it is hard work and expensive to get a 50-100-200 years old tree collected from the wild to establish good root system. If it survived in harsh conditions in the wild for so long it is not hard to adapt those condition in an artificial environment. Just a few years of research would be enough.

Who love coconut bonsai welcome to my channel 🏝🏝🏝
and im watching thinking bonsai’s are just naturally small
Just put some string on top of it and it will stop growing.

only Minecraft gamers will understand.
Why is something that takes: extreme skills that take years to master, water everyday, obsessive care and forming for like 3 years only cost 1 million dollars.. that's a bargain if you ask me..

edit: more like 10 years to grow & form I just realised

I would have a funereal like . . . 🥺 . . . I can’t fathom the grief and just pure guilt I would feel if I took ownership of a 50 year old tree and it died in my care. I would take a few days off from work and ban myself from owning another bonsai other than starting a new one myself. It’s different if you adopt a dog and it passes away after a few years but you can’t ever let up with that tree. No excuses. They can live for over 1000 years. Killing that tree is like dying in the Avatar state except you don’t get the privilege of dying with your offense. You’ve fucked up forever like Korra and for everyone who ever cared for that tree. I don’t have one but just the thought of wanting one feels unnerving. I couldn’t even trust someone who doesn’t already maintain bonsai to watch my tree. I’d have to name it too because i spend too much time with it to not name it.

They didn’t say this but she is the first female bonsai master. Not only that but she’s been doing it 51 years and she’s still the only female bonsai master.
