Detailed Care Guide
Light: Bright Indirect Light. Cannot tolerate low light conditions.
Water: Watering bonsai can be a little tricky. Since bonsai trees are usually placed in relatively smaller pots. It needs to be watered every week. To ensure that the tree is watered properly, place the pot in a sink of water about an inch deep and let the water seep in through the holes at the bottom of the pot. keep the soil moist at all times.
Pet-friendly: The plant is pet-friendly!
Humidity: 40% to 50% humidity is appreciated. It can tolerate low humidity but it thrives in high humidity.
Temperature: Temperatures above 65℉ are ideal.The tree cannot tolerate extreme cold conditions.
Fertilizer: These species are heavy feeders. They need to be fed every two weeks during summer and monthly during winter. Use a balanced liquid houseplant fertilizer diluted to half strength or a slow-release fertilizer.
Repotting: Bonsai needs to be repotted with fresh soil every year during summer. Use a basic houseplant mix. Remove the tree along with its soil from its original pot and trim the lower roots making sure you don't cut too many roots. Place the tree in its original pot or a different pot.
Indoor bonsai generally loses its leaves due to improper care. Do not let the plant sit in dried soil for long periods. If the tree is placed in a small pot and receives bright indirect light all day long then it needs to be watered more frequently i.e., every week. However if the bonsai is placed in a relatively low light spot and in a big pot (which is highly unlikely) then you might not have to water it too frequently. Always check the soil before watering. If it's dry then water it.
Overwatering bonsai can make its leaves turn yellow and eventually fall off. Bonsai also indicates that it might be overwatered by showing mild brown spots on leaves before turning completely yellow. Moreover the soil might start smelling musty. Water the bonsai only once a week and if it is placed in low light then check the soil between waterings. Do not water if the soil is moist.
