How To Care For Chinese Sweet Plum Bonsai
Bonsais like being well-watered. Remember to keep the soil consistently moist, thoroughly soaking once a week.
Keep in a brightly lit area close to a window but out of direct sunlight for optimum conditions.
Bonsais love a humid environment. Be sure to keep your bonsai away from radiators and give your plant a mist every so often. To go the extra mile, why not introduce a humidity tray over the colder months of the year?
Bonsais thrive with soil that retains water well. it is recommended that a mixture of grit, peat, and loam should be used with your bonsai.
During the growing season, be sure to use a little fertiliser every week. In spring, it may be worth using nitrogen-heavy fertiliser. However, as you reach summer and autumn it would be wise to use a well-balanced fertiliser instead.
Sweet plum bonsai isn’t prone to pests and diseases. In rare cases aphids and whiteflies can occure. To treat, why not use our Neem Oil?
You should look to repot your bonsai every two years. A good way to gauge this is by looking at your roots. If plenty are touching the sides of the ceramic pot, it’s time to repot!

Bonsai Tree Care guide – Part of the beauty of the Bonsai plant is the small amount of time you tend to it. The biggest tip one can give is to keep it wet, especially the shallow roots. If you do this, with little light or any other attention your Bonsai will survive. If you really want to see your Bonsai thrive, patience is key. Use a Bonsai care tool such as these Bonsai pruning shears to prune the shape you desire. Fertilising regularly during the growing season is crucial for Bonsai to thrive. As it grows repotting or transplanting your Bonsai will resupply the tree with the nutrients it needs to grow and flourish.
