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