Bonsai are trees and plants grown in containers in such a way so that they look their most beautiful--even prettier than those growing in the wild. Cultivating bonsai, therefore, is a very artistic hobby.
Consequently, how deep should a bonsai pot be?
The general rule of thumb is that the pots depth should be equal to the diameter of the trunk just above soil level. For oval or rectangular pots, the length of the pot should be 2/3 the height of the tree. For round pots, the diameter of the pot should be 1/3 the height of the tree.
Do bonsai trees need holes in the pot?
Bonsai trees do not grow in regular potting soil. These plants require constant drainage. If they are put in the regular potting soil, the water will not drain and the roots will begin to rot. When new soil has to be added, the correct soil should be placed in the pot.
