Bonsai plants usually die indoors.
#10
Had at least 4 die, time to call quits – at this price it's hard to though – sod it, they're only plants ^_^ I want another.

it might be the volume of the water and not the frequency that was the problem. Especially if you are like Ben3110.

Can you keep them in a fish tank?
#12
I'm going to buy one and eat it to prove I'm not boring.
#13
I really wanna get one, how easy it to grow? I have like zero experience with plants mind.
#14
I bought one from Lidi years ago, still going strong.
Feed from abought April until October reguarly. Avoid over watering. Use rain water if possible.
#15
Can I use snow, there's lots of it :p

Well that doesn't sound good for my plan to become a Bonsai master
#20
I bought one from Lidl or Aldi can't remember which but it died, prob my fault. Found much nicer looking ones for a fiver in IKEA though, not sure if they still do them.
#21
You are actually buying £6.99 of frustration as you try to keep the thing alive like a plate spinner tries to keep the plate whirling round.

You will be left with a ceramic pot/tray which is a nice item in itself but also a lot of guilt that you did something wrong.

My advice would be to NOT give this as a gift as the receiver will dread you coming round and asking "how the bonsai I bought you is going?".......when there is a very high chance it will have perished.

And in reality these mass produced Bonsais have never had the quality of care of an expensive one - they are £6.99 and many will be on the way out as you buy the darn things.

Heat added though as there will be some who can keep them going !
#22
They need to be watered every 2-4 weeks. I got one from Aldi a few months ago, aphids ate the leaves as I topped up the soil using compost from my garden. It's growing back slowly after I killed the aphids off.

They are quite easy to look after indoors. Just trim them occasionally and water them every 2-4 weeks.

Amazing price for these trees though, they usually cost about £20+.
#23
you can usually find these in homebase or B&Q for around £10. ive seen them in M&S too.

theres only 2 kinds of bonsai that you can actually keep indoors, the rest are outdoor plants. karate kid has decieved us all.

like others have said, be careful. i had mine in the office. it died, very quickly. and i done my research before buying too!
#24
hmm , Had a Bonsai before ......................................... and it died.


Has anyone managed to keep one alive ? I actually found keeping fish easier ... :)

Not worth the hassle .......
#25
I was going to get one last time, but by the time I got there, they only had them in small
#26
I'm amazed how few people succeed with them. They really are quite easy, no different to any other plant.
I've had a chinese elm going for 3 years now. It's doing just fine! Many of these will be outdoor bonsais, there are only certain species that can stay indoors all year round, chinese elm being one of the best.
#27
We brought one that we've put in the bathroom, it appears to have grown well and is great to look at when sitting on the pan..
#28
Like most of you mine all died, I looked after them, neglected them, tried all sorts, none worked.
I know what you mean about them being outdoor plants but are you sure that would be a good idea in this weather? What about a porch, what is it about being indoors that kills them? I think I will look for that chinese elm you mentioned

Fine to come in during harsh weathers and frosts. A lot of species just need some time outdoors each year, some time between spring and autumn..I'm not sure why, probably a combination of humidity, light and other factors. There are plenty of caresheets online with really good info...once you find out what species you have! :D
