Originally hailing from subtropical regions, Hawaiian Umbrellas are THE perfect beginner Bonsai Tree for people who think that they’re going to kill a Bonsai Tree. Because they won’t. Unless they like…really, really try.
The trunk is wild, the leaves create a dense canopy of umbrella shaped foliage, and you need one.
Age: 4 to 5 years old
Height: 7 to 10 inches
It’s a subtropical plant, so between 64 and 71 degrees works. And it wouldn’t mind being near a heat source.
Big fan of light. Loves the stuff. Can’t get enough. LIGHT.
You can water this thing as little as possible. Once a week-ish is probably good.
