Wisteria Bonsai Tree Care

Wisteria Bonsai Tree

Because of the clumps of fragrant flowers it produces, the Wisteria tree is frequently used in bonsai.

Under the right conditions, these fast-growing, climbing trees can grow into stunning bonsai. The rapid growth thickens the truck quickly, giving the tree an aged appearance.

When in bloom, this bonsai will take your breath away.

Watering Wisteria Bonsai

Wisteria prefers the sun and thus dries out quickly. Check for moisture and water as needed on this tree at least once a day. We recommend immersing the tree for a few minutes in water up to the brim of the pot. This will allow the soil to absorb the maximum amount of moisture before allowing the excess to drain.

Placement of your Wisteria Bonsai

Your Chinese or Japanese Wisteria bonsai needs full sun, but it should be shaded during the midday sun. The number of flowers produced is directly proportional to the amount of sunlight received. The more sunlight the tree gets, the more beautiful it will be during the bloom season. To survive, this tree requires a dormant winter period.

Training Wisteria Bonsai

Wisteria is ideal for formal upright, slanting, and cascade bonsai. The weight causes the flowers and foliage to droop. Because this species grows quickly and vigorously, you will need to pinch back unwanted growth on a regular basis. During the growing season, you should check your tree weekly to remove growth as soon as possible.

Repotting Wisteria Bonsai

Trim back a third of the surface roots of this tree every two to three years. This will provide more space for the tree to grow new roots. If your tree runs out of room to grow roots, it will stop growing and stop expanding. Wisteria prefers moist soil because they do not like to dry out.

Fertilizing Wisteria Bonsai

A fertilizer that is low in nitrogen but high in potassium and phosphate should be applied to your Wisteria. After the tree has flowered, feed it once a week. This is significantly more than most bonsai require, but it is required to support the tree during rapid growth. Slowing down fertilization in order to slow growth will only harm your miniature tree.
