*Ensure your tree gets enough water – Water is vital for your bonsai trees growth and appearance so you will need to make sure that your tree is getting plenty of water and enough that it needs to survive and grow. You should water your tree at least once every single day.

*Display your tree in the best possible way – Now, this is made up of two factors, they are how the bonsai tree looks and how safe is it, you want to keep your tree safe from animals and other things that could damage it but you also want it to look great and let the beauty shine through.
