- Realized that I spelled "Bonsai" wrong, and felt the need to correct me

What's A Bonzai Tree?
Sometimes confused with a Dwarfed tree, a Bonzai tree is a miniature version of a fully grown and developed tree (Example to the right).
Unlike Dwarfed trees, however, Bonzai trees are created through the art of Bonzai. Artists dedicate large sums of time and work into creating these trees as a form of art, and are rewarded greatly by the elegant and unusual miniature tree they've created.
On the other hand, Dwarfed trees are not made, but rather are an entire subspecies of a certain type of tree. So basically, Bonzai trees are created, and dwarfed trees are not.

"Bonzai" vs "Bonsai"
For those of you who are wondering why I'm still continuing the use of the intentionally mispelled word "Bonzai", the answer is simple. There are actually over 4,000 individuals that spell this word incorrectly every month, and due so since the s in "Bonsai" sounds very similar to z. Which causes the assumption that Bonsai is actually spelled "Bonzai", which we all know isn't the case.
On a second note, anyone who is reading this which assumed that Bonsai was spelled with a z as opposed to an s, now knows otherwise. So I feel as though I'm providing a service to anyone who had not known otherwise.
Since I've already started with it though, I suppose I'll just continue to write this hub with the intentional mispelling of the word, and save it as a question for anyone that feels like taking a little quiz at the end of this hub.
Why Would You Want A Bonzai?
Bonzai trees are one of the most unique works of art that you'll ever see, and your guests will make it the topic of conversation.
When's the last time you went into someone's home to find an amazing miniature little tree sitting on a desk or display table? Never, i'm assuming, since not many people even realize how affordable these little trees are.
Not only will it add to the beauty of your home, but having plants inside increases the quality of the air your breathing. This is due to the photosynthetic cycle that all plants go through, in which their waste product is actually fresh oxygen for your lungs!
As if all of that wasn't enough, Bonzai trees are very easy to take care of once they are fully developed, and won't need the excessive attention that most home gardens require.
So with all of that in mind, there's almost no reason NOT to get a Bonzai tree. And there's two different ways to go about getting one.
