Caring for Bonsai Tree

Soil

Another important factor is soil. Soil is always a top-priority and one of the most influential elements to plant growth. You must use the right soil conditions for a Bonsai tree to thrive and flourish. The soil you need will depend on the species of Bonsai tree you purchase. There are several species, so be sure you know which one you have so you can pick the proper soil and fertilizer.

Water

As mentioned, Bonsai trees are not your normal house plant. In fact, they are not a plant at all; they are trees and require the same level of care as the trees in your backyard. As for water, they require watering every day. So if you are out of town, you must have someone care for your tree just like you would for your dog. And you don’t water Bonsai trees the same as house plants. You must place them in a bowl of water and allow the soil to soak. Once the bubbles stop in the water, the tree is done.

Temperature

The soil must retain moisture in summer and be able to get rid of it in winter. So when the weather is hot, they will need to be kept in a partly-shaded area of your home or office. When it is cold, they should be placed in a sunny area so that the soil doesn’t stay too wet for too long.

Pruning

The most popular part of owning a Bonsai plant is the artistic pruning you get to do every week. They grow fast, so you will have to keep up with the trimming in order to maintain a healthy and aesthetically pleasing tree. But it is important to prune it properly so that it remains healthy and grows into the right shape. Cutting the wrong branch or over-pruning can be detrimental. You must learn the proper technique for trimming Bonsai trees.
