Fukien Tea Bonsai Plant

  • The Fukien Tea is originally from China and it was named after the province Fukien, in Chinese Fujian.
  • It is also endemic in parts of Japan, Indonesia, Taiwan, and Australia.
  • The Fukien Tea is still very popular for Penjing in China and in Western countries, it is a common indoor Bonsai tree.
  • Its small dark-green shiny leaves have tiny white dots on the upper side and are covered with hairs underneath.
  • Small white flowers can appear all year round and sometimes produce small yellow-red to dark berries.
  • Imported from Japan
SOIL
  • A well-drained but on the other hand water buffering soil is very important because the Fukien Tea is sensitive to drought as well as excess wetness.
  • A mixture of Akadama with a little humus and pumice is well-proven.
FERTILIZER
  • Solid organic fertilizer is appropriate for the Fukien Tea Bonsai because its roots are sensitive.
  • Liquid fertilizers can also be used in carefully measured dosage and only on moist soil.
  • Feed the tree well from spring to autumn following the directions for use, but in winter less often.
LIGHT
  • The Fukien Tea is an indoor Bonsai which can only be kept outside all year in very warm climates.
  • It needs a lot of light and in the house, it should be positioned behind a windowpane where it gets the best light.
WATER
  • Keep the tree moist, as it doesn’t like droughts.
  • But be careful not to water too often because it doesn’t like soil wetness either.
  • As soon as the soil surface gets dry the tree needs to be watered generously but it must not be left standing in excess water.
