There are a variety of trees that you can choose from to grow and develop into a Bonsai. This is a special art of gardening that is very difficult and must be done correctly in order to get the best results possible. One of the most exclusive species of trees that you can grow is the New Zealand Tea Tree – which is also known as the Leptospermum.

This is also one of the most beautiful trees that you will ever set your eyes on. It produces flowers that look like the wild roses that have small and spiky evergreen leaves. The bark has an elegant and ancient look to it giving it an appeal that you are developing something truly special. But be careful because this is one of the more difficult types that you could choose to grow.

In order to grow properly it needs a large amount of sunlight – which makes it easier for people to grow it outdoors. However, it can be grown inside of the home within a room that receives sunlight through most of the day. For most plants using fluorescent lighting will help to substitute for sunlight – but not when it comes to this plant.

Make sure that the temperature it receives is somewhere between 55 to 60 degrees in the winter and nothing below this. They should be in an area that receives plenty of fresh air and away from anything that is giving off heat.

The soil that you use need to be moist at all times. Growing any type of Bonsai can be tricky when trying to water it – but this is even more so. If you do not water it enough it will die within three to four hours. However, you should also make sure not to give it too much.

Pruning is another important method when growing Bonsai trees. Usually you can train the tree to grow in the direction you want by how you prune it. The Tea Tree will not allow any style but the cascade. You need to control the growth of the flowers and leaves – but not so much that the branch will die.
