Tips on Watering
Careful watering is key to maintaining healthy bonsai. Never allow your bonsai to completely dry out. Watering instructions may vary slightly depending on the tree or plant species. Please refer to the information tag attached to your bonsai for specific information. Over time you will be able to evaluate each particular bonsai's water requirements and create your own watering schedule to accommodate it. Note whether your bonsai is considered an indoor or outdoor tree and refer below to more specific watering tips for each type.
Best results are achieved by watering with a small watering can or hose attachment with a fine-spray nozzle so that water cascades are softer, avoiding blasts to bonsai and potting soil. To water, thoroughly soak the container's soil until water runs out of the bottom drainage holes. Periodic misting of the tree's foliage is also recommended.
Trimming and Pinching
Bonsai trees benefit from trimming to maintain their miniature size and beautiful form. Pinch and trim new growth back to the farthest safe point, being careful not to remove all new growth. For more in-depth tips about trimming (and training) techniques, an instructional book will provide the best, safest recommendations to keep your bonsai in tip-top shape.
Your Master?s Collection Bonsai will arrive securely packaged in a double layered corrugated box measuring an oversized 42"H x 27"W x 24"L. Please be certain to open your box from the top.
Before your tree is packed, it is watered thoroughly. The base of the tree is wrapped in plastic in order to retain moisture and keep any topsoil from spilling during shipping. The packaging process begins by placing a base of Styrofoam peanuts in the bottom of the box. Your bonsai is then gently placed in the box and packed with Styrofoam peanuts, which suspends the bonsai in the box and helps prevent branches from being damaged in transit. After taping the box, straps are used to ensure the packaging stays secure.
