Fertilize your bonsai

Provide your bonsai with the nutrition it deserves

by Valentina Addante

Spring has arrived, it's time to prepare everything you need to fertilize your bonsai!

The first question you may be asking yourself is: what product do I use?

The range of fertilizers that the market offers is vast, but let's focus on specific bonsai fertilizers

Let's start making a distinction between mineral fertilizers and organic fertilizers.

Mineral fertilizers have a faster action than organic ones, but pay attention to how you use them, an incorrect dosage could burn the plant.

For this reason, among all the products on the market, we have chosen CIFO SLOW , mineral yes, but with slow release; with one administration, you ensure about 3-4 months of nourishment to your bonsai, without compromising its health.

Cifo Slow

Organic fertilizers, on the other hand, of 100% natural origin, provide the necessary nutrients gradually and safely.

Among the best known and used, there are Biogold and Hanagokoro , and both in pellet format, easy to dose.



Just leave them on the soil surface of your bonsai, they will decompose , releasing the necessary nutrients as you go to water.

And now which one to choose? Better fast and mineral or slow and natural?

Why not both at the same time!

For this reason Pollice Verde has chosen to create an Organo-Mineral Fertilizer .

Organo-mineral fertilizer

Its consistency in micro-granules, contains in a single product, the right thrust and effectiveness of a mineral fertilizer (without risk of burns), combined with the creation of a micro-biologically healthy environment.

Now you will want to know when to do it, well, fertilization must always be done away from the periods of vegetative rest, therefore OK in spring and autumn, absolutely NOT in summer and winter.

Fertilization cycle

Also remember to favor fertilizers richer in nitrogen in spring, to stimulate the vegetation and richer in potassium in autumn, to favor the development of the woody tissues of the trunk and branches.

Last important advice, to always keep in mind, NEVER fertilize immediately after repotting; it is a very delicate moment for the plant, avoid overloading it with things to do!
