watering a bonsai tree
I’ve always wanted a bonsai tree, so when I saw this last little ficus tree at Whole Foods a few weeks ago, I snatched it up. Apparently, there had been 30 other trees there the day before and this was the last one left. Although it didn’t look like the runt of the litter, I felt a little sorry for it and was glad to take it home and care for it. Much to my surprise, when I read the watering instructions, it said to put five ice cubes a week on the soil and let it melt. It seemed a little odd at first, but now I am reveling in the ease and simplicity of it! Who knew?
