In the last 20 years, the craft of bonsai has become a truly worldwide pursuit. "Successful Bonsai" offers a variety of strategies for success with bonsai, and particularly on keeping bonsai in indoor settings - a relatively new branch of the bonsai-keeper's art. Traditionally, bonsai has been an outdoor affair, involving hardy shrubs, trees and conifers. These would be taken indoors sometimes for a few days at a time for display - and then only occasionally. Keeping bonsai indoors affords the opportunity to consider tropical and subtropical species - plants that would perish if kept outdoors in temperate climates. Indoor bonsai has become an expanding part of indoor gardening, and one that is well suited to small living spaces and modern trends in decor. "Successful Bonsai" looks at the particular demands of keeping bonsai - both indoors and out - and provides advice on choosing the right plant, bonsai styles and forms, pruning, wiring and training, as well as care and feeding guidelines throughout the year, control of pests and diseases and how to build up a collection. The book includes and A - Z (by botanical name) of 61 tropical and subtropical trees that are suited to being kept indoors.
