Hello everyone.

I am new to this site and am quite new to bonsai growing. I have recently bought a Banyan fig bonsai tree, I was just wondering do they actually produce fruit or is it that just its name?

Just bought one to. Put it in my conservatory, not in direct sun, but full light. A lot of the leaves have started to fall off. They are turning yellow. What could be the problem?

Hi

The leaves on my banyan fig are doing the same although it is indoors and it has good light but not directly on the windowsill so it can't be scorched.

Perhaps it may need re-potting, I am certainly going to do this with mine as it seems to be dry straight soaking.

Also make sure that u r not over watering (but not letting the soil dry completely out) as this can cause yellowing of the leaves and wilting.

Also they don't like draughts.

Good luck lol

You know, I grow a lot of ficuses indoors. When they get sad and I
can't figure out why, I put them outdoors and they perk right up.
This of course only works during warm weather.

The banyan bonsai tree is awesome and appreciated bonsai tree. It is associated with mysticism and spirituality. There is a unique feature of this tree that is it has the ability to grow on its own when not cared for at times . The banyan bonsai tree donot produce fruit

Bonsai can be wired, pruned, and trained at will to form certain shapes. One caution from experts is to be sure when using wiring not to harm the branches or trunk with the wire. Cuts can cause disease or infestation from pests.

The word “Bon-sai” (often misspelled as bonzai) is a Japanese term which, literally translated, means “planted in a container”. This art form is derived from an ancient Chinese horticultural practice, part of which was then redeveloped under the influence of Japanese Zen Buddhism. It has been around for well over a thousand years. The ultimate goal of growing a Bonsai is to create a miniaturized but realistic representation of nature in the form of a tree. Bonsai are not genetically dwarfed plants, in fact, any tree species can be used to grow one.

Techniques such as pinching buds, pruning and wiring branches, and carefully restricting but not abandoning fertilizers are used to limit and redirect healthy growth. Most commonly kept under four feet (or about a meter) in height, bonsai are not genetically dwarfed plants. However, plants with smaller leaves do make these compositions easier to design. In fact, any plant species that has a woody stem or trunk, grows true branches, can be successfully grown in a container to restrict its roots/food storage capability, and has smaller or reducible-leaves can be used to create a bonsai.

Look around at your trees, bushes, hedges, the copses in your yard or park, plants in the nursery or wild landscape – essentially any of those can be starter material. Carefully collected during the appropriate growing or dormant season with proper permission, your composition is begun. Most native plants can then be grown outdoors; material from more tropical climates needs at least some protection from the elements in the temperate zones. In our Bonsai tree species guide you can find more information about specific care per species.

Bonsai is a Japanese art form using miniature trees grown in containers. Similar practices exist in other cultures, including the Chinese tradition of penjing from which the art originated, and the miniature living landscapes of Vietnamese hon non bo. The Japanese tradition dates back over a thousand years, and has its own aesthetics and terminology.
Caring for a Bonsai tree is not as hard as is commonly thought. However, as Bonsai trees are planted in small pots a few basic guidelines have to be followed when watering, fertilizing and repotting your trees. Though Bonsai trees are a little more delicate compared to the average indoor plant, a few basic rules should enable anyone to take care of its tree properly. Most importantly are watering, fertilization and choosing the right position to place it.
