Bonsai is a local species in the House of Science

Bonsai is a local species in the House of Science

About thirty bonsai trees, most of them local species, now inhabit Room 1 of the House of Science. They will do this until May 12, when they will renew themselves every four days because most of these trees cannot stay in the ground for long. Enclosed space with artificial light. Thus, about ninety copies will be on display over the next twelve days.

The “Bonsai” exhibition brings together specimens from the private collections of members of the Rioja Bonsai Society, including Faustino Vilar, who today participated in its inauguration with his colleagues Julian Arnaiz and Rafael Calleja, the advisor Rosa Fernández and the director from the House of Sciences, Dolores Fernández.

In addition to all the native conifers, the most abundant in this bonsai forest are olive trees, fig trees, maples, some elm trees and all kinds of thorns. Small specimens of beech, Chinese boxwood, sage, pomegranate, apple, juniper or acerola are also shown. Most respond to native species, those that are best adapted to our climate. On the contrary, Faustino Vilar points out, “The most complex species to deal with are the ones that stores always want to sell to us, which are the subtropical species (Ficus, Carmonas,…) because in winter they have a very big advantage.” Bad time in Logroño because of the cold temperatures.”

Faustino Vilar, whose collection includes trees over twenty years old, realizes that this hobby requires “patience and a lot of effort for the bonsai to succeed, for it to become a tree,” and it gets worse when none of these species are created for it. He is in a pot and remembers that the origin of bonsai “was to transport live medicinal plants.”
