Choose an outdoor location that receives full sun but is protected from strong wind and scorching sunlight in the hottest part of summer days. Protect from frost in the winter.  

Watering and feeding: 

They must be watered generously as soon as the top inch of soil gets dry. Do not let the soil dry out fully and avoid constant wetness. See our watering guide.
Only feed periodically during the growing season (March-Oct). 

Pruning and wiring: 

The firethorn bonsai tolerates hard pruning very well and this is best done during the early to late spring months. You can remove large leaves at any time to encourage smaller, more compact ones.  
The older the branches become, the more brittle and hard they get and can break easily. It is best to wire new shoots after summer. 


Repot in early spring with a well-draining bonsai soil mix.
