Bonsai: - Rules of Play says:

The Japanese term "bonsai" means "planted in a pot". A bonsai is a living work of art, a perfect miniature plant, identical in all respects to its full-size simile, but several times smaller.

In Bonsai, players take on the role of expert bonsai masters intent on growing their own bonsai. Whoever grows the best plant will be appointed to show their Bonsai at the Imperial gardens.

In the solo game you can try the Additional Scenarios that change some rules and goals, and eventually try to beat the Emperor Challenge.
