Bonsai in Sacramento is not as hard as you may think. Often considered living art, “bonsai” means ‘tree in a tray’, and the Japanese have specialized in the art for hundreds of years. They are no more difficult to look after than most houseplants, needing food, consistent watering and light to survive. However most bonsai are not houseplants. In Sacramento's summer heat they need watering daily and in winter are subject to frosts, but bringing them indoors over winter, is a mistake and sure way to kill them. Bonsai are trees, very special, small ones, but most often need to be treated as the plant that they are. Trees live outside, unless known as a tropical. Exotic Plants has a large selection of small and simple, to very aged and exotic bonsai tree species right now. Please take a moment to enjoy the art of bonsai at our store some time soon. Summer is often a good time to take on a new plant growing experience or challenge. An adventure into bonsai might be what your home or garden needs right now, and can bring added serenity to your life as you care for these enchanting small trees.As always, if you have questions or need to know more, give us a call at 916-922-4769, visit us online at www.exoticplantsltd.com or stop by our urban jungle at 1833 Howe Avenue at Howe & Alta Arden in Sacramento.
