Planting and care

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Likes a bright position but avoid exposing to direct midday sunlight if possible. Use a Basic Bonsai Mix 1 part peat or loam, 1 part Grit, 1 part leaf mould or bark Keep soil moist but not water logged. Likes a warm location ideally above 15C and does not like too much temperature fluctuations. 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.

Caring for Carmona I Shape

    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.

Typical uses of Carmona I Shape

Special features: Most ficus bonsai trees can produce aerial roots in their natural habitat, which are often presented in appealing bonsai creations with many aerial root pillars or root over rock styles. To enable aerial root growth in our homes a humidity of nearly 100% must be achieved artificially.

Ornamental use: Its compact nature, small leaves, small white flowers, red berries, and gnarled looking trunk all make it a lovely bonsai to grow.
