*We understand that the exact appearance and size of your tree may vary from the picture shown, since every bonsai is unique. Therefore, we have added the Additional Requests field for those with more specific preferences for their tree.
Outdoor bonsai are generally kept outdoors year-round. Keep them somewhere with adequate sunlight in the morning, and partial sunlight in the afternoon. If temperatures are dipping to freezing in the winter, they may be brought to a garage/shed for shelter.
Monitor the dryness of the soil every day. If the soil feels dry, you may water from the top or soak from the bottom for 5-10 minutes. The frequency of watering can range from once a day in the summer, to once a month in the winter (colder season = water less).
Pellet/time-release bonsai fertilizer is recommended. Liquid fertilzer works as well but is less effective. Follow instructions that come with your chosen fertilizer. Do NOT fertilize in the winter. Generally, fertilize once every month for other seasons.
