instructions provided with each tree help ensure success by
answering common questions.
It’s important to never allow your bonsai to dry out completely;
check the instructions that come with your individual tree for
details. A small watering can is helpful for indoor trees and a
hose with a gentle spray attachment works well outdoors. A soft,
thorough watering that does not disturb the soil is ideal.
Sunlight requirements vary with the type of bonsai selected.
Check the tag on your tree for information about ideal light
Circulation: Good air circulation is helpful for all plants,
bonsai included. Place your tree where there is occasional air
movement, and away from heating vents, drafts and fumes.
keep your bonsai looking its best over the years, feel free to
remove dead leaves and to snip off any branches that have grown
in odd directions.
Wiring: Should you decide you’d like to actively shape your
bonsai as it grows, guidelines are provided in the care
instruction sent with each tree.
Outdoor bonsai can freeze, but should be placed in an area where
they are protected from the north wind. They should also be
“heeled-in” which protects them from dramatic changes in
temperature. To “heel-in” your bonsai, simply cover the entire
pot in either mulch or burlap.
bonsai require routine watering, the other aspects of proper
care are much more seasonal. With minimal care, bonsai will
provide joy for years to come.
