Thanks for your replies so far. This is very helpful!
I understand that we can think of different categories of hobbyists:
- People who don't see that as interesting because they want the tree with them, at home, to enjoy it and learn with it. @namnhi
, I assume that what you meant?
- People who are pursuing financial motives, such as investment, and,
- People who like bonsai for beauty of the art but don't know necessarily enough about maintaining them, like art collectors (@Srt8madness
I was wondering also about people looking to enter Japan shows like the Kokufu with a tree they own. Can only do this if the tree is in Japan, don't you think?
Now, let's say you do buy that tree. What do you think about possible motives to do such a thing?
you are raising a good point, when to enjoy it? Do we only enjoy bonsai by seeing them physically?
, what if you can't? what if you can? permanentely or not?
