Bougainvillea Dwarf (Any Color) – Plant-17%
Bonsai are trees and plants grown in small containers in such a way so that they look their small version but most beautiful even prettier than those growing in the wild.
Bougainvillea is an excellent plant to train as a bonsai. One benefit to training a bougainvillea as a bonsai is that it grows quickly enough that it might be ready to display within a single growing season.
A great thing about the Bougainvillea Bonsai is that it comes in so many varieties. The bract colour can be pink, white, purple, orange, and many shades in-between, some varieties also have variegated leaves.
The colouring of the Bougainvillea is very striking and certainly grabs everyone attention. Bougainvillea has sharp thorns but they are not be bothersome in a Bonsai form.
Caring of Bougainvillea Bonsai
- The Cypress Bonsai should be positioned outside or near window in a sunny or semi-shaded place. Keep the plant indoor or outdoor with atleast 6 hours of sunlight.
- The soil should be well drained and fertile rich in organic content.
- Poke your finger/plain small stick into the soil to check the moisture.
- Water when top soil (1-2 inches) feels dry to touch.
- Water thoroughly in the summer and reduce watering in winter and rainy season.
Application of Fertilizer
- During the main growing season feed the organic fertilizer once a month.
- Loosen the topsoil without disturbing the roots of the plant so it can uptake the nutrients and moisture easily.
- Repot the bonsai every two to five years depending on its age and size.
- Do the re-potting late evening and keep the plant in shady area for 2 to 3 days and then move the plant in its suitable climatic condition.
- Trim the new shoots leaving one or two pairs of leaves.
- If the canopy becomes very dense the leaves should be thinned out in order to let light get in, prevent the inner twigs from dying and encourage back-budding.
- Remove dead, infected or damaged plant parts and dispose them away from the planting area.
- Spray Neem, Eucalyptus or Citrus oil for any insect/pest attack, as a primary treatment.
- Don’t fertilize the common boxwood during winter dormancy.
- Do not over-water the plant especially when pot does not have drainage holes.
