Bonsai a Japanese art form using cultivation techniques to produce, in containers, small trees that mimic the shape and scale of full-size trees. Similar practices exist in other cultures, including the Chinese tradition of penzai or penjing from which the art originated, and the miniature living landscapes of Vietnamese Hòn Non-Bộ. The Japanese tradition dates back over a thousand years.
The Japanese loanword “bonsai” has become an umbrella term in English, attached to many forms of potted or other plants and also on occasion to other living and non-living things. According to Stephen Orr in The New York Times, “the term should be reserved for plants that are grown in shallow containers following the precise tenets of bonsai pruning and training, resulting in an artful miniature replica of a full-grown tree in nature.” In the most restrictive sense, “bonsai” refers to miniaturized, container-grown trees adhering to Japanese tradition and principles.
