Hi all!

I need your advice.

Right now the Bonsai Care section of this site (see top menu) consists of 9 pages and a subsection with tree species. Like this:



Bonsai Care
  • - watering
  • - fertilizing
  • - etc
  • - tree species
  • - specie 1
  • - specie 2
  • - etc

[/ul]


[/b]



Would it make more sense to divide the care category in two sections: care topics, and specie specific care?

So, it would be like this:



Bonsai Care
> By topic
- - - watering
- - - fertilizing
- - - etc
> By tree specie
- - - specie 1
- - - specie 2
- - - etc






Let me know!

Oscar,
I think a generalized bonsai care sheet in the beginning with specific species care after is a great idea. The only thing I would do is add more trees to the species guide. Members of this forum could fill it with their trees, using their care instructions for that specific tree.
One problem I have with some bonsai sites is that they only list the most popular trees, therefor giving beginners the impression that those are the only suitable trees for bonsai. I along with other members here have some very odd trees that aren't listed on any site.
We could fill the species guide very easily.
That's my 2 cents worth :)
