THE SECRET OF FUKU-BONSAI'S
HIGH-SUCCESS WORKSHOPS

THIS ARTICLE IS OBSOLETE AS WE HAVE MADE MANY MAJOR IMPROVEMENTS SINCE 2005 WHEN IT WAS FIRST WRITTEN.  IT WILL BE REVISED.

                Bonsai success is when healthy bonsai improves each year.  Fuku-Bonsai's workshops are successful because we focuse on a specific bonsai experience,   pre-engineered all components, and because the exciting results create a desire to learn more!  If the wrong plant is potted, it may be too difficult and die. If a young seedling or rooted cutting is potted, it will not be a bonsai with character.   But when our Prepared Keiki Bonsai Stock is potted, a bonsai is born!

It's the essential component for houseplant growers to start into bonsai! The plant is already established with roots in and over the rock into a small amount of media. When potted, there will be a surge of growth to begin training!

DEVELOPING CHARACTER
         In bonsai training, the most important portion of the tree is the 2" above and 1" below the soil-line.  The tree on the left is a young untrained seedling that would take many years to develop into a bonsai. The Prepared Keiki Bonsai Stock on the right already has an exciting amount of character and interest!

WHICH ONE CAN QUICKLY
BECOME AN EXCITING BONSAI?
          The young untrained seedling will require the highest level of bonsai skill and several years before it will have as much character as the Prepared Keiki Bonsai Stock. Unfortunately, a beginner does not have that skill and will struggle.  Prepared Keiki Bonsai Stock will produce great results and the enthusiasm to learn more about the fascination of bonsai!

          It's logical that the result at the end of your workshop is based upon the quality of your material at the start of the workshop. Our Premium Keiki Bonsai Stock takes us several years to produce and they all have an exceptional amount of character and each has the potential to be an attactive bonsai!  Each is a "bonsai waiting to be born!"
