What do you mean by common? No.....not every plant can be made into Bonsai. However Ficus species are common which can be used for this purpose.

The common fruiting and flowering plant like jasmine, lemon and other plants. Why not every plant can be turned into a bonsai? I have seen rose plant bonsai on the internet.
