Fall watering in Orlando


(Chris Hamlin) #1

Hi, I’m new to the Bonsai world and my trees have been doing great so far this spring and summer. However, now that it’s November I just lost one of a little black pines and I don’t want to loose anymore. I live in zone 8 and my question is how often should I be watering? We’ve had one front so far but the weather has been warm and dry.

The most important thing is to check the tree daily and see if it needs water. If the soil is dry where the roots are, water. If the roots are still moist, there’s no need to water.

Here are some details on the topic:
