Chinese Elm Bonsai Trees

The UK's Finest Selection Of Chinese Elm Bonsai Trees

The Chinese Elm is one of the most common species sold as indoor bonsai, although they thrive as Outdoor bonsai.

However, if they are grown indoors, they like to be kept in a cool room and ideally on a window sill where they will get lots of light. As Chinese Elms are naturally deciduous, i.e they shed leaves in the Autumn/ Winter. Also, it is not uncommon for the leaves to turn yellow and shed when moved to a new location. Given the right conditions they should re-grow.

They prefer a cool room like most indoor bonsai and the soil should not be allowed to dry out. Spraying the soil with a handspray is NOT enough. One of the reasons that the tree might shed its leaves could be due to insufficient light or lack of water. Water your bonsai when needed, it may require more water during the growing season ans less during the dormant period in Autumn. Frequency of watering will depend on the warmth and humidity of the room. Make no assumptions, check your bonsai daily. 

Sometimes they can get an infestation of White fly or Red spider mite. If you see these pests, use any insecticide to get rid of them. You can also try jetting them off with a hose pipe.

If you have problem growing Indoors - keep the tree outdoors and it will thrive.
Some of our customers have grown this species very successfully for over twenty years!

The Elm can stand a wide temperature range from minus 10°C to the mid 30s as in their native habitat in China. So it is a very hardy species.
