The Surinam Cherry Bonsai Tree

Jul 17, 2008
Originally from the sub tropics of South China and Hong Kong, the Surinam Cherry Bonsai Tree grows equally well inside or out. Used as an indoor plant they lend an elegant feel to any room and will be noticed by your friends and guests.

With its slender red trunk and spreading branches of leaves ranging in color from dark green to red, dependent on season, the mature tree produces a red fruit during the spring and summer.

Special note should be made that you should only use either distilled bottled drinking water or Reverse Osmosis purified water when watering your Surinam Cherry Bonsai tree, or any other type of bonsai tree. Your average carbon filtered water systems will not do. This type of water still has chlorine metals and minerals in it that has the potential to harm this type of tree. It a good idea to fully water the tree with a spray bottle. Once down, let the soil dry out before watering again. Keep your bonsai tree in full or moderate sunshine for best results. It does require a special type of fertilizer that you can obtain over the internet.

I have never seen a Surinam Bonsai Tree on the market younger than six years and pricing is based on the age of the tree; however, their beauty makes them worth any extra cost.

These trees take many years to train and prune. Bonsai trees are trained and trimmed to be pleasing from any angle one looks at it. The trees are trained by using wires to hold them in place while it continues to grow. Plants always grow upward toward the sky so after new foliage appears if it is in an undesirable spot it is usually cut off. Perhaps the owner of the tree wants to see just how the new foliage will grow before he decides to do anything he may even choose to leave the branch and just wire it in a different direction. Weights are used also in training a bonsai tree and by adding extra weights the owner can get a desired result once the tree grows a little more.

Bonsai plants need re-potting from time to time. This has to be done very carefully to make sure the plant does not die in the procedure. When the plant is taken out for transplanting a portion of the roots should be trimmed or cut, which helps reducing its size and then the re-potting should be done in a larger pot.

You now know that a Surinam Cherry Bonsai Tree must be created, cultivated and nurtured, much as you would care for a child. But all the effort is worth it, because this is an extraordinary plant that will repay you with its visual elegance.
