Chinese pepper (Zanthoxylum)

A Chinese pepper tree bonsai (Zanthoxylum piperitum) attracts attention with its pleasant, sweet-peppery smell and its shiny green pinnate leaves. What is unusual about this bonsai species is its yellow wood and yellow roots. The botanical name (Zanthoxylum = yellowwood) indicates this.

The pepper tree is often kept in the home as an indoor bonsai all year round and is popular for bonsai design. In a bright location it is suitable as a bonsai for beginners.

We import the pepper tree bonsai directly from the producer in China. You can buy your bonsai here. You will receive exactly the bonsai tree that you ordered in the shop. Safely packaged.

Care in a nutshell

Fertilizing: Fertilize from the beginning of spring to September with a commercially available bonsai fertilizer such as Biogold, Hanagokoro or bonsai liquid fertilizer

Watering: Don't keep it too wet or too dry

Overwintering: The room should be as bright and cool to cold as possible

Repotting: At the end of February in a well-drained bonsai soil (such as the Akadama imported from Japan)

Wiring: The shoots become hard after a few weeks, i.e. the bonsai wire does not need to stay on the tree for too long. Older shoots should be bent carefully otherwise there is a risk of breakage

Cutting: Wound healing is good but can be promoted by applying wound sealant for bonsai. If well cared for, a pepper tree bonsai needs to be cut about 2-3 times a year
