The Q&A Archives: BONZAI


Answer: Bonsai have very specialized care requirements and these will vary depending on both the type of plant and the form to which it is being trained. In terms of day to day care, the soil should be kept slightly moist but not soggy so you may need to water daily if the soil mix is free draining and the pot is very small. You might want to look at a book or two about the general care of bonsais to see if you can meet the plant's cultural needs. You might also contact the American Bonsai Society, web site: They have several publications available to help you. Enjoy your new hobby.
