Winter/Fall Bonsai Care Tips

  • Check water carefully: conifers are still drinking and deciduous trees stop drinking as their foliage fades
  • Indoor bonsai need less water as their growth slows - but of course never let them dry out!
  • Make sure indoor trees are not too close to a radiator; place them in a well-lit window or under grow lights
  • Remove debris from your outdoor trees to prevent them being inundated by falling leaves and twigs
  • Line up big wiring projects for this coming winter
  • Let your tropicals ease into winter; don't do any more major reworking or repotting on tropicals
  • Examine all trees closely for pests (this is the time they proliferate!) Misting will help, but have a mild insecticide on hand to prevent a larger attack
  • Get your winter tree habitat ready to go, in case the weather takes a quick turn for the worse
  • Pull up a chair, relax, enjoy all of your trees and your hard work
