- Flowers/Fruits are seasonal and plants may not be with flowers/fruits at the time of order/delivery.
- Bonsai (Japanese: 盆栽) is a Japanese art form that utilizes cultivation techniques to produce, in containers, small trees that mimic the shape and scale of full-size trees.
- Similar practices exist in other cultures, including the Chinese tradition of penzai or penjing from which the art originated, and the miniature living landscapes of Vietnamese Hòn non bộ.
- The Japanese tradition dates back over a thousand years.
- Using the right soil mixture for your Bonsai trees is crucial as it supplies your trees with nutrients, but it also needs to drain properly, provide enough aeration, and retain water.
- You can get those ready-mixed soils or prepare a soil mixture yourself.
- You can use a relatively high Nitrogen content fertilizer like NPK 10:6:6.
- Biogold is a favored fertilizer among Bonsai enthusiasts, but any fertilizer with the right NPK value is perfectly fine.
- Being woody shrubs and trees, the plants need a sunny spot with at least four hours of direct sunlight to thrive.
- The lack of sunlight will lead to lanky growth and large leaves which are not desired in bonsai specimens. You need to prune the plants periodically to maintain their shape and form.
- Water your trees when the soil gets slightly dry.
- Be sure not to water your tree if the soil is still wet, but don't let the tree dry out either.
