This happen by accident. As I was trimming my bougainvillea, I accidentally broke one of the matured branch. I don't have the heart to throw it away, so I just took a pot and plant it and see what happen. Weeks passed and the leaves are still green. I let it sit in the sun. Now it bloom too. I am so happy. My first bougainvillea bonsai. I tried planting more using this method but it didn't work, the rest did not last more than 2 weeks. I have a variety of bougainvillea, but the plants are bigger and in big pots. I prefer to keep my plants small, like bonsai. I only have a small garden and want a variety of plants, so it is best to keep everything small.
Guess the saying is true, things happen for a reason. If I didn't break that branch that day, I might not have a bonsai today. Looks like another one of my wishes came true. I am grateful that it happened. Hope your wishes come true too. Happy gardening and thanks for reading.
