Bonsai and Penjing Questions and Answers

picture of a bonsai

I bought a small bonsai and have had it in my living room for several months.
It's failing fast-what should I do to save it?

What's the difference between bonsai and penjing?

What is ikebana?

What is suiseki?

How often should I water my bonsai or penjing piece?

How often should bonsai pieces be repotted?

I'm very interested in the Asian art forms of bonsai, penjing, suiseki, and ikebana. Where can I find more information?
