Tea Tree Bonsai Tree Care

by on September 30, 2011

The New Zealand Tea Tree Bonsai, otherwise known as Leptospermum, is a variety of the Bonsai tree that adds an exotic and sophisticated element to a landscape, and is typically used as a hedge plant. This beautiful tree produces tiny, wild rose-like flowers and has an aged-looking bark that can convince most people that the tree itself is very old. However, Tea Tree Bonsai tree care must be very precise and attentive if the tree is to survive. Unfortunately, these gorgeous trees often die in the early stages of growth due to imbalanced tree care.

The most important tree care aspects to pay attention to are water and sunlight. Tea Tree Bonsais require large amounts of sunlight in order to thrive. If you are planting outdoors, be sure to place the tree somewhere that is in direct sunlight for the majority of the day, however, the tree should not become overheated. To understand this delicate balance better, it is best to consult a professional tree care expert. If the Bonsai is staying indoors, it should be placed in a room or window that is exposed to sunlight throughout the day; however it is also important that the Bonsai is in a location that isn’t colder than 20 degrees or located near any heat sources.

As with all Bonsai trees, watering is very important, but the watering process also can be a very precarious situation. If the Tea Tree Bonsai does not receive sufficient amounts of water, there is no hope for it because it will simply die within hours. This fact may entice you to water the plant constantly, but overwatering can cause root rot, which will also kill the tree. Tree care experts recommend the soil moist be kept perpetually moist, but not wet.

When it comes to shaping, Tea Tree Bonsai specialists say you can only prune the tree in a cascading shape. A regular pruning regimen is important and you should not cut past the leaves, but prune enough to control the growth. Your local tree care company will be able to instruct you on how to adequately shape and prune your Tea Tree Bonsai.
