What to look for when buying a bonsai tree?
Obviously, price is one of the main selling points for bonsai trees, but there is a number of things you should also look for when buying a bonsai. If you want your bonsai tree to grow healthy and strong you have to make sure the tree you’re buying is healthy to begin with. Here are some of the things you have to pay attention to when inspecting a bonsai you’re intending to purchase:
- Leaves – It’s normal for a few leaves on your bonsai to go yellow when the seasons change or if it has been kept in a particularly warm place, however, overall the foliage of a healthy bonsai tree should be mostly a bright lively green colour. The leaves should also be small and shouldn’t have and black or brown spots or look like they have been eaten by leaf bugs.
- Trunk – The trunk of a healthy bonsai tree should be thicker at the bottom and get thinner towards the top. It might split into two or three bigger branches depending on how the tree is shaped and wired. The surface of the tree should look even, some small bumps are natural but overall it should feel smooth.
- Branches – A well-shaped healthy bonsai should have evenly distributed branches throughout the shape of the tree, that don’t cross each other. They should also look lively and not dry, as well as that there should be plenty of buds and new growth.
- Roots – The roots of the bonsai you’re purchasing should be securely anchored into the pot but still sticking out of the soil just a bit.
