TOPIC: Leptospermum Scoparium - NZ Tea Tree Tips

Leptospermum Scoparium - NZ Tea Tree Tips 1 year 4 weeks ago #31913

Hello all;

I am growing a NZ Tea Tree to eventually become a bonsai.
Well, I know it is famous for being extremely fussy, it dies on you in a matter of hours, it hates having its roots touched, etc, etc.
But it is soo beautiful!
So even knowing the success rate can be as low as 5%, I'll try. The weather here is not bad for the Tea Tree (it's called "Erika Japonica" here in Brazil) and I like challenges. But..
If anyone has any experience with Leptospermum and can share some tips, I'll be more than happy.
Here's a picture of one of the minuscule flowers in my tree right now:



Thanks for your help!
