  • Bonsai Contemplations

    This forum is for threads concerning your thoughts and deliberations about the art/craft/hobby of Bonsai in general as opposed to individual trees. It includes in particular the more philosophical discussions on the artistic side of bonsai such as Bonsai: Art or Horticulture? What actually is American Bonsai? etc. This forum could also include pictures or videos of trees that have inspired you (remember the AUP though), items about your benches/winter storage areas, travelogues, the weather, links to other bonsai sites you think people might enjoy and so on. Essentially if it doesn't fit anywhere else, then put it here. This section now also includes show reports.
