Growing tips:

Location: Outdoors from spring to autumn but it should be placed indoors (cold greenhouse, veranda or bright room) in winter because it does not tolerate temperatures below 10°C

Watering: The False Pepper Tree needs a substrate that is always moist. Water your bonsai regularly while allowing the root ball to dry out slightly between waterings to avoid excess water. Watering should be done on a regular basis. In hot weather, it's every day !

To do it right : water the entire root ball up to the roots, the water will drain away through the holes under the pot or bathe the tree in water (drenching) for a few minutes. 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).

Repotting & Substrate: Every 2/3 years in spring, in the nursery, we use agricultural potting soil which is composed of black peat, blond peat, eco-aged, topsoil, horse manure, pozzolana

Waist: Cut off the new shoots, being careful to leave 2 leaves after allowing 5 or 6 leaves to develop. Do not defoliate the False Pepper Plant completely. You can tie your tree all year round. Pruning helps to develop your shape.

Fertilization: In the nursery we use NPK 12/12/17 blue tomato/flower fertilizer. Put a handful of them on the substrate (small or large depending on the size of the pot) from May to October, every 2 months.

All our bonsai are unique. That's why they're referenced by numbers. These do not indicate the age of the tree. If you would like to know more about it, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We ship throughout France and neighbouring countries that are part of the EU.

We take care to pack each bonsai in custom-made wooden crates or reinforced cartons. The tree is well protected and tied to prevent any risk of breakage. Depending on the size and weight of your bonsai, shipping is carried out by specialized carriers: DPD (under 30kg) or GEODIS (+30kg).

Our priority is that the delivery goes smoothly. For this reason, shipments are rarely made on weekends and never during heat waves, to prevent your bonsai from transacting for too long. We also regularly check and verify the tracking of your packages.
