Lighting, & Watering

• Bonsai Bougainvillea Trees like most bonsai prefer a well draining soil that also holds water well, I recommend a blend of lava rock, per-lite, a little potting soil and grit.  Make sure your pot allows for proper drainage.

• The Bonsai Bougainvillea thrives on sunlight, the more sun the more flowers your bonsai will produce.  However, never let the tree get direct sunlight while the soil is dry.  If the sun is to strong and the leaves begin to dry out or burn , place your Bougainvillea Bonsai Tree into partial shade to let the leaves recover.

• The Bougainvillea Bonsai prefers slightly drier conditions, so be sure not to over water. Good drainage will assist in effective watering. During its flowering period it will enjoy extra watering to maintain health and vitality.
