Welcome to the A to Z of Bonsai.

Entries when they are made will be added to an editable list which will be checked prior to publication. Photos and images of the bonsai term can be added and links made to relevant web pages.

Similar to style in nature of the weeping willow. Bottom branches should be bigger than the top, as in other styles, and will weep less than top branches.

SHOOTS should be trained early to produce the "fishing pole" curve effect. In this case the curve can be achieved using weights as opposed to wire.
