Bonsai Feeding Guide
Just like water, feeding and fertilising your tree is imperative during the growing season. Many other house and indoor plants can be found in larger pots, however with bonsai trees because they’re confined to a relatively small space. Bonsai trees aren’t able to extend their root system in search of nutrients, which is why as a bonsai tree owner it’s your duty to take care of it. The reason they need fertilisation is to replenish the soil’s nutrients, and feed off the nutrients to grow and thrive.
You can buy fertiliser in a bottle, and it has 3 core ingredients – nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus. The purpose of nitrogen is that it contributes towards the growth of the stems and leaves. Potassium improves the bonsai trees overall health, and phosphorus improves and promotes healthy root growth. If you’re using a liquid fertiliser, we recommend feeding your bonsai once a week during spring, summer, and autumn to help prevent attacks from pests. One sure fire sign to take note of, is that if you notice your green leaves start to yellow, the bonsai is lacking nutrients.
