Grow a Bonsai Tree

COMPLETED BY 16

LISTED 146

The bonsai tree is a beautiful metaphor for human growth.

The bonsai seed is no different than a full-size tree. The restrictions in the size of the pot limit the reach of the roots so the tree isn’t able to grow to its full potential. The lesson: never limit yourself!

The bonsai cultivation has been practiced for nearly 2,000 years.

This makes it one of the oldest known art forms. Respect your elders!

Patience is a virtue.

It will take a lot of trial and error, but when you nail it, it’s all worth it.

There’s no way to speed up the growth process, so in the age of fast-paced social media, you can finally train yourself to calm down.

It’s like a gym for your mind.

Unlike animals, when a bonsai tree gets wounded, it grows around the injury instead of repairing it.

This leads to some very interesting designs.
