Planting and pruning advice
For the best results, this tree must be kept in either the pot it arrives in, or transferred to a similar ornamental pot. If you intend to repot the tree, the new planter should be no more than 25% larger than the original pot.
The tree will require pruning up to four times a year to maintain its shape. Cut back the foliage to create a flat surface on the clouds; ensure you cut from underneath the clouds as well as from the top to maintain a delicate, thin shape.
This bonsai tree comes with a metal support and a set of elastic ties, which allow you to apply gentle, consistent pressure to the branches. This trains your tree into shape, allowing you to manipulate the branches into your desired shape.
