Bonsai Tree Guide

Bonsai plants have a rich history stemming from Asia. The art of growing bonsai trees utilizes miniature landscapes for aesthetic appeal. Below is Osuna Nursery's basic bonsai tree guide.

  • Water

Water when soil feels slightly dry. Give a thorough watering to soak the entire root system.

  • Position

New Mexico’s climate requires that you place your bonsai trees indoors, except for Juniper and Boxwood. Place in a bright place with a consistent temperature. Certain species may require more sunlight or shade.

  • Winter

Roots in shallow pots freeze easily. Be sure to protect the roots from the cold if they are exposed  in their location. Place in a cold, dark spot for about three weeks so it can winter over or go into a dormant period to rest.
