Growing Tips

Location: Outdoors all year round, it should be displayed, preferably, in a sunny or semi-shaded spot. Hardy in winter, but as a precaution you can protect the roots (the pot) from heavy frosts.

Watering: It needs a substrate that is always moist. Water it regularly while allowing the root ball to dry out slightly between waterings to avoid excess water. In spring/summer, watering will be done regularly, when it's hot, it's every day ! On the other hand, in winter, water according to the supervision of the soil. Thanks to the rain and cold, you won't necessarily need to water regularly since the substrate will remain moist.

Important: Don't hesitate to water the entire root ball up to the roots, the water will drain away through the holes under the pot or bathe the bonsai in water (drenching) for a few minutes, to make sure you water it well. We do not recommend putting a cup/container under the pot as the water will stagnate and can cause root rot. (Too much water = asphyxiation).

Substrate and repotting: It likes cool soils with a good amount of organic matter. In the nursery, we use agricultural soil composed of black peat, blond peat, eco-aged, topsoil, horse manure, pozzolana. During the next repotting, which is done about every 2/3 years at the beginning of spring, you can mix more draining substrate such as: akadama, pumice, kiryu... Just be careful not to disturb the root ball, don't destroy the whole root ball!

Many bonsai react noticeably when repotted at the wrong time or too drastically.

Waist: The Magnolia, being naturally harmonious, does not require a really regular pruning. Nevertheless, if you want to maintain a beautiful silhouette, every year, after the flowering period, you can prune your Magnolia in autumn, for maintenance pruning to rebalance the branches or remove the criss-crossing branches.

Fertilization: In the nursery, we use blue tomato/flower fertilizer NPK 12 12 17. You can use some and put a handful (small or large depending on the size of the pot) on the substrate from May to October, every 2 months alternating chemical/organic.
