So I’ve been looking at how people grow their bonsai stock . I’ve noticed that Americans put their seedlings in the ground or the biggest containers ever to get maximum growth. But then I see the Japanese put their seedlings in very small containers and grow the bonsai to take 100 years other then like 10. Is this just a misconception and not the truth about the Japanese or is this what they actually do since I’ve never been to Japan to see for myself. And if they actually do why do they do this and not do the “American” way ?
