Bonsai Care

Japanese term for a raft style bonsai. (See also Raft). This style is created by laying a tree on its side and training all the conveniently placed branches upwards and downward facing branches are removed. The trunk is then buried in the soil and eventually produces roots along its length. Eventually the originally root ball of the tree can be removed once the raft is established.
