If you’re looking to grow and care for a bonsai tree in your home or enclosed garden, there are a few things you should know when it comes to caring for the plant and making sure that it thrives. From the right type of soil to watering techniques, here are some tips on how to grow beautiful trees for your indoor or outdoor garden.

Most people tend to either underwater or over water the plant, and both could prove to be harmful to the plant. You can check to see if your plant needs watering by pushing the main trunk down into the soil. If you find that the soil is cool and moist, you can forego watering the tree for a few hours. If the soil is dry and crackly, it is definitely time to add some water to the pot. There are also different variations of trees, so finding out all you can about the plants from the nursery will let you know exactly how much you should water it. Also, you should use a watering can to moisturize the tress instead of a garden hose, since the force could harm the plant. If your bonsai is extremely dry, you should soak it for about two minutes in a basin large enough to emerge the pot in. 

When you’re feeding a bonsai tree, be sure to get the highest quality of fertilizer you can find. The fertilizer should have ample amount of nitrogen so that the plant can grow (especially if you want your plant to get larger with time), as well as potassium and phosphates. A soil with B vitamins and iron is also necessary for the health of the tree. Most people think that this small plant can feed itself, since most other trees are able to do so , but this small plant is confined to a pot, which means you will have to provide the food. You should feed your tree about every two weeks or so to make sure that it is thriving at a normal rate. People have also been known to use beer to feed a bonsai tree; if you decide to do this, make sure that the beer is weak so that the alcohol will not damage the plant. You may also want to dilute the beer before watering the fertilizer. If you want to make sure that the leaves of the tree have a rich color and the trunk and branches are strong, you can use a multivitamin–place it in the soil of the plant on both sides of the trunk, and the nutrients will eventually seep out of the pill and into the soil.  In order for a bonsai tree to maintain its appearance, you’ll have to give it regular trimmings and spray the leaves to maintain the color. However, be careful not to spray the leaves in spring and summer months since the leaves can be damaged from the humidity.

Want to know where to purchase a bonsai tree? You can order one from sites like www.buybonsai.com, or you can check out your local nursery for varieties and care tips; see www.pike.com for more details. Happy gardening!
