Okay so i know you can have super small bonsai but is there like a mid sized bonsai? Can you make yourself an apple bonsai thats just the size of a largeish houseplant? Or would that require an extra large pot for the roots to grow in?
ok so im gonna just dump here everything i know about bonsai, which isnt a lot but its what i have:
-i had a friend who was really into bonsai and he said that, in theory, you can make any plant into a bonsai. i have no idea if this is true
-sometimes the plonts get confused and grow full sized fruits even if theyre really tiny
-bonsais take years and decades to make, and its a process called “training”, as in, the plant starts????? semi-big i think?? and then theres a special way you slowly prune it back until the plant is used to being small??????
-bonsai vary in size??? like ive seen some on display that are older and smaller and some that are younger and larger because they’ve been in training for less time?? the younger ones ive seen are about the size of a mid-sized houseplant or smaller.
