Bonsai tree care basics though Bonsai trees are more delicate compared to the average indoor plant, a few basic rules should enable anyone to take care of it. The goal with pruning is to maintain its shape as it grows. Plus, cleaning up the top growth ensures growth elsewhere on the plant. Use bonsai clippers (not scissors!) To remove any dead branches. Then decide which branches to trim in order to maintain the desired design.
Check your bonsai morning and evening to see if it needs watering. If the soil looks dark and feels wet then it will not require watering. Only when the soil looks light brown and feels damp will your bonsai require more water. Water thoroughly all over the soil until the water drains through into a tray or saucer. The watering of your bonsai must never be neglected. Apply water when the soil appears dry — never allow the soil to become completely dry. If your bonsai is receiving full sun, it may be necessary to water once a day.
This schedule may vary with the size pot, type of soil and type of bonsai tree you own. Those who know about the art of bonsai trees know that it is more than just a “small tree in a small pot”, but something that takes a great deal of care, time, and. Bonsai is an impressive and stunning art form. Bonsai trees are miniature versions of full-sized trees that can be placed in a pot and displayed on a table.
