Bonsai Care

Most Bonsai Trees do best in well-lit areas and thrive in sunny, warm locations. Better lighting conditions will result in more frequent flowering. We recommend positioning the Bonsai in an area that gets sun in the morning and shade in the afternoon.

Usually, any changes in light, temperature, and watering will cause bonsai tree to drop its leaves. Don’t panic, it’s okay…the tree will soon re-grow its leaves.

To aid the health of your bonsai place it on a humidity tray. (included) This will catch the water draining through the holes in the bottom of the bonsai pot. This water will create some humidity around your bonsai. 

Watering is the most important part of growing your bonsai tree. If the soil looks dark and feels wet then it will not require watering. Only when the soil looks light brown and feels slightly damp will your bonsai require more water. Water thoroughly all over the soil until the water drains through into a humidity tray/saucer.
