Planting a BONSAI>BONSAI tree in a BONSAI POT or container than is larger than required to maintain the tree.

Often done when a bonsai tree is less actively well cared for or is being given a "rest" for a year or so. Trees are sometimes also planted back into the ground to allow to grow on a bit outside of a pot.

However, the size of the pot used has a major influence that determines the speed at which the tree grows and too big a pot can have negative impacts on health and growth rate - see attached website.
