Celtis Bonsai Care guidelines
Place the Celtis sinensis in the sun, but be very careful that it doesn't dry out on a hot day.
Once every two or three weeks during its growth season (from early spring till autumn). The Celtis Africana is a somewhat slower growing tree, fertilize monthly.
The Celtis Bonsai will grow a very fine ramification when regularly pruned. Trim back shoots that outgrow the intended shape. Continue reading about pruning Bonsai trees.
Every two years in spring, using a basic soil mixture. Continue reading about repotting Bonsai trees.
From cuttings during summer. Can also be grown from seed.
The Celtis requires a well draining soil, which will prevent the most common issue of root rot. Red spiders and caterpillars can be a problem, but mostly on already weakened trees. For more detailed information on these techniques, check out our Bonsai tree care section.
