Take care of your virtual bonsai.

ZenBonsai is a Virtual Bonsai game. Adopt a tree, water it and watch it grow. The tree grows slowly over the days, so this is a game of patience and calmness. Cut some leaves, bend some branches, strip off some bark. Especially: keep your zen. The bonsai tree is a reflection of your inner self. If all goes well, after a few days you'll have your own beautiful Bonsai.

I think I'm done here. Had a nice run, but not doing anything to improve the stuff I've mentioned really sucks.  Plus, after you accidentally cut a 83 day old branch and don't have an undo button, it sort of upsets ya.  Good luck all.

This is what my 32 day old tree looks like!

My bonsai is 3 days old and it looks good!

Nice job! Mine is close to two months old, but I had to leave it unattended for 3 days, I'm afraid it's not going to make it. Still fun starting a new one, but I'm hoping this one makes it.

Still be great to be able to cut this stuff off.

An undue button would be nice about now.  I cut my 39 day old tree in half accidentally. Would love to be able to trim the dead foliage below the base line of the pot too. Thanks.

How many days does it take to grow?

Within hours you can have a little fellow.  My first few died within a couple days and one made it a couple weeks. My latest one I've been able to make sure it stayed watered better and kept dead leaves cut off (which help the plants stress) the best the application let's us. It's impossible to cut them off if they are too low or on the backside of the tree.  Here is one of mine at only 4 days old.4 Day Old Bonsai

Here, the hard part was finding the right Bonsai humans to accompany the tree! Giggity, giggity, goo!

I really wish I could cut the dead foliage off the backside of my tree.  The tree stays stressed because I can't  select and cut them.

Hi! Yes I should really do something about this... Thanks for your message! :)

Hi! The bonsai always grows in the direction of the sun (more or less) you should not place it too close...
