Bonsai Care

This process uses accelerated growth techniques and massive foliage and branch reduction, followed by strong re-growth, more moderate reduction and training (primarily by training).  It is used to produce larger trunks with character and taper, particularly in tropical regions but may be applied in temperate regions to species like azaleas.
