Ornamental plants are always a welcome addition indoors and a bonsai tree is pretty much the epitome of ornamental plants. While it’s entirely possible for a beginner to follow a guide over time and create their own bonsai tree from a young age, not a lot of us have that kind of patience so we end up buying our bonsai from nurseries.

Now bonsai trees are very expensive because of all the time and hard work someone put into making them. The last thing you’d want is to buy a nice bonsai and then just watch it lose its majestic form over the next couple of years. Though after some time, the effects of the growth stunting and wiring becomes permanent, a bonsai tree can still lose its form if not maintained properly. This is why even if you decide on buying a bonsai, it’s a good idea to pick up a handbook on how to care for and maintain a bonsai tree at home.

A bonsai sycamore tree is a very popular choice in bonsai and looks amazing when kept right. There are a few things that you should be careful about when it comes to taking care of your bonsai sycamore tree. Sycamore trees don’t do too well with the cold and this means that the bonsai is even more susceptible to dying in the winter. If you keep your bonsai sycamore tree indoors, where the temperature is right, you won’t have your tree dying on you anytime soon.

It’s important to cut the leaves in the summer, when the tree grows new leaves. By cutting the leaves bi-weekly, you can stimulate tree’s growth and have it absorb nutrients and fertilizer a whole lot better a well.
