Planting & Care
Sunlight: Likes a bright position but avoid exposing to direct midday sunlight if possible.
Soil: Use a Basic Bonsai Mix 1 part peat or loam, 1 part Grit, 1 part leaf mould or bark
Water: Keep soil moist but not water logged.
Temprature: Likes a warm location ideally above 15C and does not like too much temperature fluctuations.
Fertilizer: Every two weeks during the growing season and every 6 weeks during dormant periods. Use a balanced fertiliser through out the year with a high nitrogen fertiliser in spring - to help with the flush of new growth.
- Over watering can lead to leafs turning yellow and falling off.
- Best time to prune is late winter early spring before new growth starts - this ensures that new growth is left on for flowering.
- Cut back shoots with 6-8 leaf nodes to the last 2 nodes.
- Repot every 2 years in late spring when warmer weather has settled in.
- Its compact nature, small leaves, small white flowers, red berries, and gnarled looking trunk all make it a lovely bonsai to grow.
