How do I learn to grow a new bonsai banyan tree? A Question by a kid.


This was a question by a small kid . I got this email from school boy . then I thought of making a simple video of making Bonsai, just it shows the child how make bonsai. here the there is no drastic pruning of roots  or branches, survival rate of the plant is good. with this he gets confidence . and be ready to make many Bonsai s  at early age. My main aim to develop and  get confidence of what they are doing.
Bonsai basics made easy for children in this video, by seeing this video can child make a bonsai for himself, Bonsai is like meditation with this art children get confidence, concentration, patience. Their imagination and creativeness develops with Bonsai art.
I send him little notes about Banyan tree Bonsai. Here it is,
Banyan tree can be grown as a Bonsai tree. Banyan bonsai can be grown from branch cuttings or from nursery stock. If you are Beginner the best way to start is to buy a Banyan plant from a nursery. If the plant is small of one or two years old it will have a trunk of one feet and one or two branches, and less no of leaves. so there will less wiring or no wiring at all. the best method is clip and grow method that is remove the top buds , then the plant starts giving new side branches. This is for beginners who are doing on line, By this method the survival of plant chances are high, one will get confidence of doing a Bonsai on their own. 

Bonsai learning for kids made simple
