Care of Indoor Bonsai
Indoor Bonsai are not difficult to look after.
These are the Basic care requirements

———— Location ————
Bright airy room with lots of light. Try to keep it in direct sunlight if possible. We suggest a window sill as the best position away from any heat sources (Central heating, Radiator)

———— Temperature ————
Keep in a cool room -10-15C best for most Indoor varieties (Elm, Ilex, Podocarpus, Citrus, Pepper, Olive, Pomegranate, Loropetalum, Buxus, Sageretia ). These varieties do not like a warm room. If the room is too warm, they dry out quickly and their leaves get weak and straggly.  The Elm can in fact be grown outdoors all year round as it is an indoor or outdoor bonsai.

10-15 C - Ideal for most Indoor bonsai
15-20 C - Ideal for Ficus, Jade, Serissa and Carmona

———— Watering ————
Watering is the key to keeping the bonsai alive. If you forget to water for a few days, the tree could die.
Keep soil damp at all times but not soggy wet
Spray the leaves occasionally to create humidity.

———— Pruning Shoots ————
Prune new growth regularly to maintain the shape of the bonsai.
If you don't prune often the tree will lose its shape and become straggly.
Prune when new shoots grow which is normally in Spring and Summer.

———— Pruning Roots or Re-potting ————
Re-pot or root prune only when the tree gets pot bound,
Usually every two or three years.
Spring is the best time for doing this.
Prune enough roots off to make space for new soil.

———— Feeding ————
Feed once a month during the growing season usually Spring- Summer.
Use liquid or pellet fertiliser.

* We do our best to get all orders out in a timely fashion and you will normally receive your goods within a few days.
