In this video, we sit down with Todd Schlafer, a bonsai artist from Colorado, and ask him how he got started with bonsai. We discuss his thoughts on the current trends of bonsai, as well as his methods on caring for his trees during the winter. Hosted by Jason Chan of Eastern Leaf.

Thank you again to Ted Matson, the curator of the Huntington Library Bonsai Garden, for letting us film in the back workshop area of the Bonsai Garden.
