  • Bonsai Questions

    This forum is for questions looking for help or information about trees, bonsai techniques and practices. This is very much a “How do I?” forum and includes requests for help on how to style or develop your tree, or general questions about bonsai techniques, the best soil mixes etc. Requests for tree/plant identification should go in Bonsai Pests, Diseases and Tree/Plant Identification forum.

  • Bonsai Pests, Diseases and Tree/Plant Identification

    Ask about any pests or disease problems with your trees. Remember to include a good description and a well-taken picture of the affected parts to help us identify your problem. Similarly, put requests for assistance in identifying trees and other bonsai plants in this section. Please include good in-focus pictures of the plant so people can assist you better. Including close-up shots of the trunk and leaf arrangement is very helpful.

  • 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.
