Summer is a tough time for many plants (especially with some areas across the nation forecasted to experience waves of extreme heat), so be sure to water your bonsai trees and lucky bamboo very often, maybe even twice a day, to ensure they won’t dry out. Be especially aware if you keep your plants outside that they are not being exposed to too much sunlight. Nevertheless, a good choice this summer would be the Sago Palm or Ponytail Palm bonsai tree. We here at Eastern Leaf recommend these palm bonsai trees because of their tendency to enjoy filtered sunlight. In fact, keep your palm bonsai tree in the shade for too long and it will refuse to grow! If your palm bonsai is indoors, be sure to place it somewhere near a window to ensure it gets ample sunlight. Sit back with a large glass of your favorite iced tea, open up a window, let that warm summer breeze flow, close your eyes and enjoy your summer!
