Fuchsia Bonsai Care guidelines
The Fuchsia Bonsai needs a bright, sunny spot if you want to let it grow extensive flowering. Otherwise, provide the tree some shade in the afternoon. It needs to be either kept inside or protected from temperatures below 5 degrees C (41F) when placed outside.
Fertilize the Fuchsia throughout the growing season, from early spring to fall, using an organic fertilizer.
To increase ramifications prune/pinch the tree regularly during the growth season. If you wish to grow thicker branches or a thicker trunk remove the flowers at all times, but do not prune the branches. Continue reading about pruning Bonsai trees.
As the Fuchsia’s root system grows rapidly, annual repotting is required. A basic soil mix can be used. Continue reading about repotting Bonsai trees.
Use cuttings during the summer.
Fuchsia Bonsai can be susceptible to aphids, when these are found on your tree you can apply a mild insecticide. For more detailed information on these techniques, check out our Bonsai tree care section.
