Bonsai

Nancy Smeets, Conejo Valley Bonsai Club

In the month of November, our guest speaker was Nancy Smeets from the Conejo Valley Bonsai Club. Nancy presented “Bonsai 101.” The definition of a Bonsai is a “Tree in a Pot.” We can create a masterpiece in less than 150 years by finding a piece of driftwood and combining it with a tree in a pot. The bonsai can live inside or outside. It needs some sunshine and water. Pots need good drainage as these plants prefer a lot of water. Bonsai need food and can eat anything. Nancy uses Miracle Grow each time she waters her bonsai, it includes a small amount of food.
