Bonsai Care

Don't Over-water and Don't Under-water

Water your bonsai tree until excess water seeps out of the bottom of the pot. To ensure that you are correctly watering your bonsai tree you should wait for the soil to barely start drying out. Misting your tree occasionally can provide the right humidity it requires.

Root Pruning and Branch Pruning

Root pruning should be done at the start of spring and only when the bonsai's roots have become grounded in the pot. Simply select the roots you want to keep and get rid of the bad ones. Branch pruning should also occur near the start of spring. Pick the branches that you wish to keep and careful remove the others. Follow your intuition and taste when sculpting your bonsai tree into different shapes.

Applying Fertilizer and Soil

Always purchase the highest quality soil you can as this makes a massive difference. Investing in quality supplies will provide proper nutrition for your bonsai tree.

Water soluble fertilizers should only be applied during the growing season and must be applied only when the soil is moist to optimize maximum absorption.

Choosing The Right Location
You should place your bonsai in an area that receives plenty of sunlight such as bright room or by a window. Make sure that there is no direct air draft hitting your bonsai tree and remember to maintain a normal room temperature.
