Planting & Care
Light: The plant thrive in bright, indirect sunlight. Direct sunlight can harm the plant.
Water: Water the plant when the top layer of the soil feels slightly dry to the touch. The frequency of watering generally may need watering every 2-4 days during the spring through summer. Avoid overwatering.
Fertilizer: Fertilize the plant every 2-4 weeks. This regular feeding provides the nutrients required for active growth.
Temperature: The ideal temperature range for growing the plant is 60 to 75 ° F
Potting: choose a pot that is just large enough to accommodate the root system without excessive space. Bonsai thrive in slightly cramped conditions, which helps control their size and encourages a desirable root structure.
Pruning: Trim the roots to maintain a balanced root ratio. Remove any circling or thick roots. Pruning the roots helps prevent overcrowding in the pot.
