    Is that your tree? It's taller than mine, so I'm jealous! Think I'll hold my breath and turn green:sick:

    I was told to fertilize my tree twice a month...but the gardener didn't sell me any fertilizer. I got this tree some distance away from home, do you use special fertilizers for bonsai? If so is that found at local gardening stores? or do i need to find it online?

    You need to get a compact fluorescent bulb(one of those funny looking corkscrew bulbs). Wattage is not really important, 40 watt will be plenty if it meets the following requirements. Somewhere on the box it should say that the color temp. is 2700k with a minimum of 1000 lumens. Walmart has them pretty cheap. I started my tree at 12 hrs/day. with the light 3-6 inches from the tree. The humidity tray creates moisture around the tree, so as long as you keep water in it you should be okay. Don't let the bottom of the pot sit in the water.<br><br>Post edited by: sam1, at: 2008/02/21 06:18

    Twice a month is probably too much especially in the summer. Use Miracle Gro 15-30-15 at half the strength recommended on the box.
    I fertilize my trees once every 2-3 wks. and not at all during the summer.

    I hope I don't sound like a know-it-all. I am pretty new to bonsai myself and between reading everything I can get my hands on an Mikey's advice and tutoring I'm learning.:blush:<br><br>Post edited by: sam1, at: 2008/02/21 06:26
