Indoors, it should be kept for 2-3 days.
The roots grow quickly and like water. From spring to autumn, water once or twice a day.
Apply a solid organic fertilizer once a month from after flowering to October, except during the rainy season and mid-summer. Appropriate fertilization will improve flowering.
Insecticides should be applied 3-4 times from spring to autumn to prevent aphids that like to attack new shoots.
Use disinfected scissors or apply a coalescing agent when cutting large branches. Long young branches can be trimmed after flowering.
Flower buds are easily produced if the entire tree is exposed to full sun. It prefers sunshine, but it can be grown in semi-shade, so the latter is recommended for easy management.
Sakura is a kind of bonsai tree whose branches are easy to break, so be careful when you wire it to bend . The best time is around June.
After flowering, remove the flower buds to prevent illness. Also, if it bears fruit, it will affect the flowering next year, so pick it.
