A Short Guide to Bonsai's

  • Bonsai's enjoy repotting. It's essential to repot every 1-3 years during spring time.
  • It's best to prune often - even in winter. Pruning ensures you can control the new growth to prevent unwanted sprigs and encourage new growth.
  • Bonsai's can be trained very easily. If you don't enjoy the direction of growth you can tie in supports to alter it. Additionally, if the base of the trunk is too thin, you can wrap stems together and over time they will fuse.

Light: Bright indirect light.

Water: Let the soil dry slightly between waterings. Do not water unless the top 2 inches are dry.
