Bonsai gardening requires a good amount of care of the bonsai tree and, therefore, many bonsai enthusiasts make use of wires that can help them to keep the tree in a particular shape and to maintain the health of the tree. Hence, wires play an important role in the bonsai gardening process.
Selecting the right bonsai wire can make a huge difference and, therefore, users need to ensure that they are buying the right wire that is based on the tree species that they have bought. Generally, bonsai wire is made up of aluminum or copper as they both are ductile and bend easily.
When you are new to bonsai gardening you must focus on the aluminum wire because they can be bent easily and they are cheaper than copper wires. However, it also depends on the kind of bonsai tree you have and how you want to shape the tree and take care of it.
