The three things to know

by Valentina Addante

If you are reading this article for sure you are thinking of getting a bonsai! But have you ever wondered what is the best way to choose it?

There are 3 things you need to ask yourself:


Bonsai are mainly outdoor plants, but if you don't have the right spaces to keep them outside, you can choose from our Ficus or our Pepper .


Ficus Retusa



Both do not suffer from indoor environments, but remember that you will have to find accommodation for them under a window, away from sources of heat and keep their humidity constant.

If, on the other hand, you have a nice balcony or terrace, your choice is certainly wider! In this case, you will have to evaluate the climatic aspect.

In the "Bonsai" category filter by Mediterranean Bonsai , if you live in warm and sunny regions or on the contrary, Japanese Bonsai if you live in more temperate places.
