Seasonal indoor bonsai leaf drop
.Continue reading for some information on seasonal indoor bonsai leaf drop
Autumn is definitely approaching. The evenings are distinctly cooler and the leaves on some outdoor bonsai are turning beautiful shades of rusty yellow and orange. This is a perfectly normal seasonal change in deciduous outdoor bonsai. Enjoy the wonderful colours.
The indoor bonsai may also lose some of their older leaves. This is particularly obvious in the Chinese Elms. The older leaves turn yellow and then drop off. This is caused by a decrease in temperature and a shortening in the number of daylight hours. However, the new growing tips will not be affected.
Please do not worry if your indoor bonsai does drop some older leaves. You will find over the next few weeks that they are replaced by new fresh green buds. By the time the heating in the house has been turned on a little to take the chill out of autumn evenings your bonsai should have a new canopy of leaves.
Also, I love watching the seasonal changes in my bonsai.
Please continue to feed both indoor and outdoor bonsai, weekly for the time being. By october your outdoor bonsai will not require any feed. If you have any specific questions please leave a reply below.
All the best
