Chinese Elm Bonsai

MikeO55(9)July 23, 2014

I just got a Chinese Elm Bonsai and I realize that it is an outside tree. I wonder if it is going to be OK with the 110+ heat we have now. Should I keep it inside for a while?

Anyone in Phoenix area growing Bonsai? I could use some advice since this is my first.

If you just got the tree and it's been growing inside, I'd keep it in the house until fall. Not sure if it needs a seasonal change to be happy, but if it's an elm, it probably does. I grow tropical bonsai and they are very happy to be inside, and don't need a seasonal change, just a few months outdoors until summer. You may want to keep your tree outside for the winter. Use a humidity tray with pebbles and feed lightly with every watering. Lots of light indoors, stay away from dark windows.
