Tamarind Bonsai Aged 15 Yrs


Pronounced as tamar-indus indi-cah.

Native to tropical Africa and naturalized around the world. The Tamarind (tamarindus indica) is an attractive tree valued for its shade and edible fruit. The foliage is bright green, dense, pinnate and feathery in appearance. The leaflets close at night. The inconspicuous, inch-wide, five petaled flowers are borne in small racemes and are yellow with orange or red streaks. The flower buds are pink due to the outer color of the four sepals which are shed when the flower opens. The Tamarind is long-lived and slow growing. Prized as bonsai due to the very attractive rough bark that it develops. Makes a great indoor bonsai.

Light: The Flowering Tamarind bonsai tree will thrive indoors in high light and appreciates being kept outdoors during the spring and summer.

Water: The watering of your bonsai must never be neglected. Apply water before the soil appears dry — never allow the soil to become completely dry. It is a good idea to use a moisture meter until you get to know the requirements of your bonsai tree. Water should be applied until it begins running out of the holes in the bottom of your pot. It doesn’t really matter “how” you water your tree, but rather that when you are finished the tree has been well watered

Humidity: During the cold months, when your bonsai is inside, we recommend placing it in a shallow tray filled with a layer of gravel with water added. This provides extra moisture around the tree as the water evaporates and reduces the amount of moisture lost to modern heating systems.
