- The Chinese Elm bonsai tree enjoys partial filtered natural sunlight and prolonged direct exposure to intense sun may burn the plant and yellow the leaves.
- This tree also constantly rotates leaves and sprouts new buds as old ones fall. This occurs most frequently when acclimating to new temperatures. The newest growth on Elms are small and look curled, therefore sometimes are mistaken for being dry.
- Once they acclimate to their new location and are being cared for properly they continue to grow and open up nicely.
- Although the Chinese Elm Bonsai tree is quite hardy, avoid cold weather. Prune after the growth period in early spring.
- Water regularly, keeping the tree and soil moist at all times.
- You can repot in early spring, every 1-3 years, but plan to repot either a month before or after pruning to ensure that the plant sustains the least shock possible.
