Chinese Elm Bonsai Care

Water every other day or once every three days.  To let the soil medium dry out a little bit between watering is the goal.  Once this cycle is established do you best to maintain it.  After 3-4 months replace the slow release fertilizer by placing a pile of the slow release pellets in each of the four corners of the pot.  Trim back hardwood shoots of branches to 2 or 3 sets of leaves but never trim soft green growth. Let new branches develop so that they are thick enough that they can ramify later.
