Work together to create a bonsai, a tree made to look very old. Start with a tropical tree and decide on its form—will it be a windswept, upright or a slant style? Then learn how to prune, trim the roots and “train” the branches by wrapping them with wire. Receive tips on how to care for your “pet” bonsai at home. For additional inspiration, visit the Fall Bonsai Show, taking place October 1–2.
