Watering your Bonsai
Watering is one of the most important aspects of growing bonsai – we hope you find this DVD clip helpful in growing beautiful, healthy bonsai trees.
DO NOT ALLOW YOUR BONSAI TO DRY OUT.
Check your bonsai morning and evening to see if it needs watering.
If the soil looks dark and feels wet the it will NOT require watering.
Only when the soil looks light brown and feels barely damp will your bonsai require water.
When you do water, water the soil thoroughly until the water drains through into a tray or saucer.
Never let you bonsai dry out and avoid keeping it constantly wet.
Remember the hotter the position the more water your bonsai will use.
If the soil surface becomes hard during hot weather simply submerge your bonsai in water, to cover the soil surface, for about 10 minutes.
