Care Information

 
Pruning Tips:
The Chinese Sweet Plum (Sageretia) bonsai can is recommended to be pruned during late winter or early spring before new growth begins. The clip and grow method can be applied. Avoid trimming the sageretia in late summer if you want flowers and fruit to develop.

Fertilizing:
We recommend fertilizing your tree every month with a bonsai fertilizer. Time release granules are the easiest to use and can be added every season. Reduce the amount of fertilizer during the winter. Take care not to over-fertilize, as this can cause your leaves to burn.

Lighting:
The Chinese Sweet Plum Bonsai trees thrive best with natural sunlight. We recommend filtered natural sunlight. If placed in full sun monitor for leaf burn.

Temperature Requirements:
Chinese Sweet Plum Bonsai prefer warmer climates. For very cold climates, Chinese Sweet Plum Bonsai can be brought indoors or overwintered.

Watering Requirements:
Chinese Sweet Plum Bonsai require moderate watering. We recommend using a soft spray to soak the soil. Ensure that water penetrates not only the topsoil but also into the roots by checking that draining is occurring on the bottom of the pot. The Sageretia can tolerate overwatering but will wilt if it gets too dry for too long. They also enjoy daily misting to maintain their humidity level.

Repotting:
Chinese Sweet Plum Bonsai can be repotted during spring and fall for the highest success rates. Avoid winter repotting as colder temperatures will make it harder for roots to recover. During repotting, we recommend trimming off older roots to promote new growth.

Indoor / Outdoor:
The Chinese Sweet Plum can be placed in both indoor and outdoor environments. During the winter, we recommend bringing the tree indoors to protect against frost damage.

30 Day Plant Policy

30 Day Plant Replacement:
We understand that not everyone has a green thumb, so if your prized tree doesn't agree with you within 30 days, we'll send one replacement tree to you for free. We'll even cover the shipping cost for getting that new plant to you, which means all you need to do is give us a call. :)

Unlike most other websites that only offer a 3-day or 7-day policy, we're giving you a whole month to ease your mind that you've got a second chance to make the tree thrive. Look for the seal on the product page that indicates the product qualifies for our 30 day replacement policy.

How it Works:
When you receive your plant, care for it as you would based on the enclosed care instructions. If things aren't looking that great, give us a ring and we'll try to troubleshoot the issue. If after our recommendations, it still doesn't look like the plant will make it, we'll go ahead and send you a new tree. Our hope is that the experience you've gained from the first tree will ensure that the second tree will live on happily. Of course, we'll always provide help and support for that one too.
