Dwarf Jade Bonsai
Our Dwarf Jade Bonsai is the easiest tropical bonsai to maintain in your home. Originating in South Africa, it's nicknamed "the elephant tree" because it's a favourite food for elephants during times of drought. This bonsai enjoys a sunny window facing southeast or west. If you don't have a place with adequate light, we recommend using a grow light for 10 to 12 hours per day. In warm weather, all indoor trees grow best outdoors. Never allow your indoor Bonsai to freeze.
The Dwarf Jade Bonsai doesn't tolerate over watering; thoroughly water your Dwarf Jade Bonsai once to twice weekly. Water your bonsai using a watering can with a fine spray end. Water should be running out of the drain holes. Misting foliage periodically is recommended, but should not be considered watering.
Fertilizing & General Care
During the spring, fertilizing your Dwarf Jade Bonsai is highly desirable. General care is also important for beautiful bonsai maintenance. In order to keep their miniature shape, bonsai should be trimmed periodically.
Insects & Diseases
Insects and diseases can attack your Dwarf Jade Bonsai, so it's a good idea to inspect your bonsai regularly. A brisk spraying of the trunk and foliage periodically helps keep your tree clean. If any problems appear, most garden centres have products available for treatment.
