*::UNKNOWN PLEASURES::* Best Tool for Watering Bonsai★ 'MADE IN JAPAN' Bonsai Gardening Tool

Bonsai trees are very popular 
and well loved around the world. 
Many foreigners have small potted bonsai in their office or at their home, 
with purpose of adding beauty, healing, and calmness to their lives. 
But, what about in Japan?
We were surprised to hear that many Japanese people have the image
of old people liking or raising bonsai in Japan. 

We're sure the fact that
 it could cost up to hundreds of thousands of dollar for one is a factor.
 But what about maintenance?
Bonsai can live up to 300 years. 
Which means it takes hundreds of years of love, care, and attention 
for the bonsai to grow.
Do people just not have that time anymore? 
Or are they just thinking it to be more difficult than it really is? 

Today we want to talk about taking care of bonsai trees. 
We have recently came across a new discover,
and would love to share it with you all.

Bonsais are currently popular with foreigners. 
There are mainly 4 types of bonsai depending on the tree. 
Which would you like?

1. Shohaku bonsai: 
Possibly the most easibly identified of the bonsai. 
The pine, cedar, cypress, etc. and are green throughout the year. 

2. Hamono bonsai: 
Uses hardwoods such as maple, zelkova and beech. 
They are popular due to the changing shades of the leaves with the seasons, 
such as green in spring and red in autumn.

3. Hanamono bonsai:
Flowering trees like 
cherry blossoms, azaleas, plum tree, camellia, etc. with beautiful flowers.
Their seasonal blossoms make a beautiful contrast with the pines and other leaves.

4. Mimono bonsai:
Uses crab apple trees, berries, ume, apricots, Chinese quince, etc. which bear fruit.

Have you ever heard of a copper watering can for bonsai in Japan?
At first glance, 
we weren't really sure if this copper watering can is necessary. 
Why can't you just use a regular watering can that you can get at a gardening store?

Well, it was from Negishi Industry that we learned all about it! 
The family of the Negishi Industry are the originators
of the innovative copper watering can.  There is one place where you can buy these exquisite bonsai watering cans.
In fact, many bonsai or even gardening enthusiasts from the world

 visit Negishi Industry in the residential area of Sumida, Tokyo 
to buy one of his handmade “copper watering cans”.

There are a total of 300 holes at the rose.
The round part of the nozzle is wide on the inside, 
and smaller on the outside. 
That way it pours out of the watering can like rain, or more of a mist. 

Can't you just take the head of the watering can and place it on another can?
Well, sorry, wont work.

Why is that?
That is due to the length of the rod (73cm), 
 since the water coming out has a strong and allocated water pressure.
So the rod controls that.
It protects important branches and beautiful moss 

from damaging when watering them. 
So as important and amazing as the rose is, 
the “long rod” shape of the watering can 
really plays an important role 
in the watering of such delicate plants like the bonsai.

These copper watering cans make GREAT souvenirs!
They do run a bit pricey, roughly $200, 

but another great and special "MADE IN JAPAN" product
that you can keep for a lifetime!
These are perfect for bonsai, but also work for any other plants!
