  Bonsai Basics

           

Location & Light                                                                                     Bonsai should be placed in a bright area, semi-shade outdoors or by a window or under a grow light indoors.  Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sun for some species and protect outdoor Bonsai from excessive wind. Artificial lighting (grow light) is satisfactory for most indoor Bonsai. Indoor Bonsai are generally semi tropical varieties, or those plants which do not require a (dormant)  winter cold period.

Moisture                                                                                                         Watering  is extremely important in Bonsai maintenance. Check daily , particularly in hot weather or warm indoor locations. In hot locations daily watering may be necessary, in cooler areas the soil will retain moisture longer.  Different plant species differ in their water requirements, so one must get to know their particular Bonsai plant's needs. A good method for watering is to soak the plant pot and all in a bucket, bowl or sink for 15 to 30 minutes. The soil should be moist, but not kept soggy or root rot could set in. In very hot weather Bonsai may need frequent soaking along with surface watering between soakings. Misting is very beneficial for indoor plants. 

Winter                                                                                                            Never leave Bonsai unprotected in a heavy frost. Provide protection by either heeling in the ground, storing in a cold frame or placing in a greenhouse. In the Pacific Northwest, late October is a good time to consider winter protection. Indoor varieties that have summered outside must be taken in before any chance of frost.

Research                                                                                          For more detailed information on Bonsai and care for individual Plant varieties please consult a Bonsai Book, for Bonsai information on the internet try the Link page on our web site.
