The Bonsai trees, when compared to the average indoor plants, tend to be delicate, but only a few ground rules need to be followed so as to take care of the plant correctly. Watering the Bonsai Tree Watering the Bonsai is the most important part of taking care of it. The frequency of watering a tree depends on several factors like the tree size, size of the pot, species of the tree, season, and soil mixture. As such, it is therefore not possible to determine how often you should water your Bonsai, but the following should offer you a guideline on how to go about it. Only when the soil feels slightly dry should you water it. This means that you should not water the tree when the soil is still wet but when it feels slightly dry. You should also avoid watering on a routine. Keep watching the trees individually instead of watering them on a regular basis, until you are exactly sure of the work you are doing.

5 Key Takeaways on the Road to Dominating Tips
Applying Fertilizer It is important that the Bonsai is regularly fed during the growth season to boost the survival of the plant. It is not recommended to fertilize trees that have been re-potted for close to a month and also those trees that have a disease. Repotting the Bonsai Tree To prevent a tree from being bound to the pot and ultimately starving to death, it is important that it is re-potted regularly. Re-potting the Bonsai does not keep it small but rather supplies the tree with nutrients that it needs to grow and flourish. How often a Bonsai needs to re-potted depends on the size of the container, and the species of the tree. Fast growing trees need to be repotted every two years while the older and more mature ones are repotted every three to five years. It is not okay that repotting is done on a routine but rather, the trees should be regularly checked every spring by removing it from the pot. When the roots of the Bonsai start to circle the roots system; then it’s time for repotting. If you find out the roots of the Bonsai are still intact in the soil, you need to give it another year before repotting. Repotting of the Bonsai is most recommended during early spring when still in dormancy.
