Miniature Elm (Zelkova serrate) :: The Miniature Elm is a hardy outdoor tree requiring full to partial sun. One of the distinguishing characteristics of the Miniature Elm is the color of the trunk, which ranges from green to gray when at a mature age. The Elm should be periodically thinned to allow light into the inner canopy. During the colder winter months, the Miniature Elm has small, green leaves with a slight, sweet fragrance. In the fall, the leaves change color to a bronze or golden yellow color and the fragrance seems to disappear.

Planting Instructions

Planting Instructions For Bonsai Seeds

  1. Open your kit and remove all components. 
  2. Place the brown soil disk in a 1/8 cup of water. After the water has been absorbed, fluff up the growing medium.
  3. Place a thin layer of pebbles in the bottom of your ceramic bonsai container to allow for good drainage.
  4. Fill the container with the growing medium leaving about 1/8 inch from the top.
  5. Scatter all the bonsai seeds on top and sprinkle a small amount of the growing medium to lightly cover them.
  6. Water until moist and water drips from the hole in the bottom.
  7. Place in a warm and very sunny location near a window or outside where it gets good sunlight. For best results, place a clear plastic bag over the top of the container to create a greenhouse effect of heat and moisture. Leave bag open on bottom of the seeds to breathe.
  8. Keep moist at all times by misting daily. Never allow to dry out or sit in water.
  9. In just a few weeks you should start to see growth in your seeds. 
  10. After about 8 weeks you should have several starter plants. When the starter trees are about 3-4 inches in size, gently pull up all the trees except for one. Keep the one tree in this container to grow and replant the other trees into new containers to make bonsai.
