Training is the process of shaping and maintaining the desired form and size of a bonsai tree. It involves various techniques such as pruning, wiring, defoliation, grafting, and repotting. Training can start from a seedling, a cutting, or a pre-bonsai material. The goal of training is to create a miniature representation of nature that reflects the aesthetic principles and artistic vision of the bonsai artist.
