Care instructions for your Chinese Privet bonsai tree

Easy to care for, the Chinese Privet or Ligustrum bonsai tree often does well only with duly watering and fertilization. Not much fuss is required over the placement of the plant, and you will enjoy its looks and benefit for a long time to come. 

  • Location: Albeit fairly flexible in terms of placement, the Chinese Privet bonsai tree thrives best in ample daylight indoors. The plant should especially be placed indoors during winters.
  • Watering: Check the soil daily, and make sure it is kept wet or damp.
  • Pruning: Prune a shoot down to the first two leaves when it starts to outgrow. Basic pruning of the shoots and trimming of the roots two or three times a year is enough to maintain the shape of the plant.
  • Repotting: Repot the plant once every year. For best results, use a 60/40 soil in terms of aggregates to organic matter.
  • Fertilizer: Use of a nitrogen fertilizer twice a month during the growing season (spring) is recommended for the healthy growth of the plant and leaves. For other times of the year,  fertilizing once a month will suffice.

    Keep the Bonsai plant outside in the sun for few days for the Bonsai plant to rejuvenate and later you could keep the Bonsai plant inside your home. But, make sure there is a window nearby for the Bonsai plant to get enough sunlight. I’m not quite sure if this Bonsai plant is for good luck. I’d recommend keeping the Bonsai plant out of the house if it doesn’t bring the ‘right energy’.

    Came in good packaging. No damages. Placed in sunlight for few hours after receiving. It’s more than a week since I bought it and no issues. Mainly placing it indoor but when possible keeping it out for some sun light and watering it when the soil is dry. There is proper drain facility at the bottom.

    Fantastic quality wise, small leaf Bonsai plant, has a good growth, came in a good packaging and delivered in a nice condition.
    I had ordered a total of three jade Bonsai plants, this Bonsai plant came in a nice ceramic small sized pot, but other two pots came seated in flimsy plastic containers. Go for this one.
