Natively found in Eastern India and Japan, the Jasmine Bonsai is a vine like tree, with a thin stem, And simple, pointy leaves. This bonsai tree flowers between April and May, and bursts out with bright white petals. This is what makes the Jasmine Bonsai such an exceptional centerpiece in any inside setting.

However, in reality, as long as you keep the Jasmine bonsai tree well watered, and in an adequately neutralized bonsai soil - the tree does the hard work itself.

Ensure that you don't put the Jasmine bonsai in the direct sunlight. This can damage the delicate leaves, and can burn the tree - especially in the summer months. Therefore, ensure that it is in a well lit place, but still in the shade.

In contrast to that of a fruiting bonsai, a flowering bonsai does not require organic fertilizer to ensure its continued growth. If you do want to use of fertilizer, you can save the expense and simply purchase an inorganic bonsai fertilizer. This will have no impact on the extent of the flowering, or quality of the bloom.
