Bonsai and its Care...
Keeping strong and healthy bonsai’s is all about good care. If you decide to grow a bonsai this is the last step of the way and, if you do it right, the most rewarding one. It’s also the longest procedure because it could last most of your life and even after, if you decide to leave it to your descendants, like they do it in Japan.
At Happy Planting we have three types of bonsai’s, Jade, Ficus and Peepal. Since there are many types of bonsais as there are trees species, so the way you take care of them may differ from one to another. When you water them you should constantly check the soil of the bonsai and keep it damp and when it gets slightly dry then water it again. Be careful not to flood it.
Find a nice place at home or office for your bonsai. Some need at least some direct sunlight on them, others not too much. Check the humidity and temperature of the room where you’re planning to put your bonsai and be aware of the needs of the bonsai of your choice. When you grow a bonsai, there’ll be a point when you’ll have to think about repotting. Different species of trees means different repot periods, from 2 to 5 years.
Fertilization is also a topic to know. There are many bonsai friendly fertilizers but you can use regular ones as well, but be very careful not to use too much though. Remember to always check for uninvited guest on your bonsai. Your miniature tree is no different from the original one when it comes to fungus, pests or diseases.
At Happy Planting we feel that Bonsai gifts are great for milestone occasions such as milestone birthdays, wedding anniversaries, marriage, engagement, housewarmings and getting over a particularly nasty illness! A beautiful tree to match an amazing occasion they symbolise growth and new beginnings and will grow with the family they reside in! Log on to www.happyplanting.in today and get your bonsai.
