Growing tips:

Location : Accustomed to the Mediterranean climate, this bonsai should be exposed outdoors all year round, preferably in full sun. However, during periods of high heat, choose a semi-shaded spot to protect it from the scorching and bright sun. In winter, don't worry, it is a robust and hardy tree, for safety you can always protect it from heavy frosts, by using a winter fleece or glass wool etc... but keep it out!

Watering : For good health, Pyracantha needs a substrate that is always moist. Water your tree regularly, allowing the root ball to dry out slightly between waterings to avoid excess water. Indeed, underwatering or overwatering is not necessarily advantageous for your bonsai.

Important: Do not hesitate to water the entire root ball up to the roots, materially, the water drains through the holes present under the pot or bathe the tree in water (drenching) for a few minutes, to be sure to water well up to the roots.  We do not recommend putting a cup or container underneath your pot as the water will stagnate and can cause root rot. (Too much water = asphyxiation).

In spring/summer, watering is done on a regular basis. In hot weather, it's every day ! On the other hand, in winter, water according to the supervision of the soil that you make of it. Thanks to the rain and cold, you won't necessarily need to water regularly since the substrate will remain moist.

Substrate and repotting : In the nursery, we use potting soil composed of black peat, blond peat, eco-aged, topsoil, horse manure, pozzolana. You can adapt your substrate very well, by mixing akadama, pumice or others during your next repotting. However, adaptation must be done gradually and delicately so as not to destroy the tree's root system.

Young Pyracantha should be repotted every 2 years, while the oldest are repotted every 3-4 years. The best time to do this is in early March. The removal of 20 to 30% of the roots is not a problem for the species, on the contrary it can only do it good !

Pruning :  It tolerates energetic and drastic pruning very well. Use appropriate tools for a clean quality pruning and in particular for pruning old wood (sharp bonsai scissors, pointed concave bonsai pliers, good pruning shears, etc.). The rapid development of these branches and leaves will allow you to easily achieve the shape you want to give it.

Important : If you want the tree to develop a lot of flowers and fruit the following year, do not prune your bonsai too late or too severely. If you prune in July-August, you may remove many flower buds. In addition, any shoots that form underneath on the trunk or on cut wounds should be removed as soon as possible.

Fertilization : In the nursery, we use blue tomato/flower fertilizer NPK 12 12 17. It is a perfect fertilizer as a supplement to nutrients. Put a handful on the substrate, larger or smaller depending on the size of the pot. Fertilize from spring to fall (May to October), every 2 months.
