Spruce Bonsai Tree Care Information

The success of your bonsai depends on a variety of factors, most notably watering and light. Below are some species specific guidelines to follow that will help ensure that your bonsai will stay healthy and happy.

Pruning Tips:
The Spruce Bonsai can be easily pruned back. Their dense needle growth can be thinned to the desired shape.

We recommend fertilizing your bonsai 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 or grow too leggy.

The Spruce Bonsai tree needs partial to full sun. If placed in full sun, take care to manage your watering to prevent your tree from drying out.

Temperature Requirements:
These trees are resilient to varying degrees of temperature, from warm to cold. However, they need protection from frost.

Watering Requirements:
The Spruce is recommended to be watered daily. Monitor the wetness of the soil. One of the most important things to remember about the Spruce is that it must have good drainage.

Repotting is recommended in early spring or fall to ensure the best results.

Indoor / Outdoor:
The Spruce Bonsai thrive best in outdoor conditions. During the winter, trees can be overwintered to protect them from freezing.
