English:
Bonsai (盆栽, "tray gardening", in Japanese) is the art of growing trees and plants, kept small by being grown in a pot and by the use of skilled pruning, formed to create an aesthetic shape and the illusion of age, although many bonsai trees are quite old and simply show their age in miniature form. The Chinese art of penjing is very similar to and is the precursor of the Japanese art of bonsai.
Español: Bonsai (盆栽, "bandeja de jardinería", en japonés) es el arte de cultivar árboles y plantas, manteniéndolas pequeñas al cultivarse en una maceta y por el uso de expertos podadores.
Français : Le bonsaï (盆栽, parfois orthographié, bonzaï), est un arbre dans un pot. C'est l'art de miniaturiser des arbres ou des plantes en taillant et ligaturant leurs branches et leurs feuilles
