- It is a genus of flowering plants in the family Rubiaceae, containing only one species, Serissa japonica.
- It is native to open sub-tropical woodlands and wet meadows in southeast Asia, from India, and China to Japan.
- It is commonly called the snow rose, tree of a thousand stars, or Japanese boxthorn; and was formerly called Serissa foetida.
- ‘Foetida’ refers to the unpleasant, vomit-like, odor that the trees give off if their leaves are pruned or bruised.
- This species of Serissa is a variegated version, expected to bloom white flowers.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
