Care in a nutshell

Wiring: Wire carefully with bonsai wire. The thin bark can be injured quickly. Bend the branches slowly and carefully. Branches are hard and quite brittle

Fertilisation: During growing period from March to September fertilize with a usual bonsai fertilizer (like Biogold, Hanagokoro, Liquid fertilizer)

Irrigation: Especially in midsummer, always keep moist in a semi-shade location

Pruning: By regularly pruning a bonsai with bonsai scissors (and pinching), a finely branched crown can be built up quickly. Stronger shoots are removed at the end of winter with sharp bonsai cutter. A wound sealant for bonsai should be applied to larger cuts so that the wounds close better (otherwise they will be visible for a long time on the smooth bark).

Overwintering: Tolerates deepest sub-zero temperatures in foil tent at high humidity well

Repotting: Early march in a well-permeable bonsai soil (for example Akadama) with root pruning. The strong root growth can be used to make bonsai trees with beautiful roots
