How hard is it to grow & maintain a Bonsai tree?

It does require a regular COMMITMENT to providing adequate natural light and regular watering.

Because Bonsai trees are cultivated in limited amounts of soil, adequate feed is very important.

Misting the tree is only beneficial for a short time so what we recommend is to place the tree on a humidity tray and add water to the tray.

Bonsai should be placed in a location with as much direct sun as possible although indirect sun will also work well.
