Our Bonsai Club (EBBS) is considering a research project. We are aware that much of bonsai care is based on tradition (albeit developed over many years) rather than ‘science’. I believe that we would be willing to spend some money, plant care, and time if a project was worthwhile. Therein lies the rub–there are so many variables and microclimates involved that i would like to spend some time getting input on what others are interested in , and consider a good a ‘doable’ project. I have no problem with a project lasting a number of years (most bonsai people seem to be like that…) but there has to be the real chance of progress at the end (even if we find that doing ‘X’ isn’t helpful)
So please respond with a science fair project that excites you!!
