In this guide you will find all the information you need to care for and grow your bonsai in the best possible way. It will help you to understand all the topics you will need to develop, protect and maintain your miniature trees.
The most important part of caring for your Bonsai is watering. In very hot or windy weather you will need to water more frequently. The following recommendations will help you to water your Bonsai properly:
Water your Bonsai when the soil is slightly dry.
When your tree requires watering, water it abundantly, enough water is needed to soak the root ball and the entire root system. You can use your fingers to check the degree of moisture on the surface (and inside) of the soil.
Never water your trees routinely
Look at your trees individually rather than watering them on a daily routine. You will need a watering can to water your bonsai, ideally from above, in a comprehensive way to reach all parts of the tree until water comes out abundantly through the drainage holes.
Remember that spraying is spraying the leaves of the bonsai with water dispersed under pressure in the form of a fine rain. To carry out this process, use the sprayer included in our kit.
How often should I spray?
If you just want to clean the leaves, spraying the plants once a week is generally sufficient. If you want to revive a dull bonsai, spray the leaves every day.
Avoid spraying your bonsai in full sun, as this will have harmful effects on your plant.
What water should I spray with?
Rainwater and dew water are clean water, which does not contain any dissolved lime or other salts. The purer the water you spray with, the better. If you spray with water that contains a lot of lime, instead of revitalising the plants, you will clog the pores and leave white spots on the leaves.
Make sure that the roots of your bonsai are properly moistened for good watering!
