Bonsai (bone-sai), which translates to  tray or container culture, originated in China around the 1300's.  The name applies to the art, and not to a particular type of plant.  

    I have experimented with different plants, have found it more demanding than originally anticipated.  I have had several plants, and would like to dabble a little more.  Unfortunately, this requires the right kind of workspace, lighting and patience (lots of patience!)   

    Currently, I have a dwarf Fichus tree, and I am working on getting a dwarf Pomegranate into shape.  I am also considering starting a variegated Bougainvillea (Raspberry Ice colored blooms).
