How to care for a Bonsai
- Light:The ficus should be placed close to a sunny window. It tolerates sunshine, but dislikes draughts and should also be kept far away from the radiator which dries the air. In the winter, the ficus loses 50% of its foliage, which it renews in the summer.
- Watering: Maintaining a bonsai means observing and understanding its needs. Remaining attentive to the slightest variations will help to keep it in good health. Learn to check the soil by scratching it a little on the top to see if the mass of the earth ball is still moist. The soil should more or less dry out between waterings. Add fertilizer mainly in the spring and autumn. Reduce the dose and stop completely in winter to allow the tree to rest.
- Outside: The ficus is not resistant to frost and should be grown inside as soon as the average temperature drops below 15°C. In the summer, you can put your bonsai outside as long as the temperature does not drop below 15°C. This will be beneficial to the tree and make the foliage more abundant.
