WANTED: Pruning Jade bonsai. Keep it short. - Mike Myatt

mrmikemyattFebruary 8, 2007

Hi, my name is Mike Myatt and my question is : How can I prune my Jade bonsai? I have been seeing additional growth and I do not want it to grow too big, just maintain the shape, that's the whole bonsai idea i guess.

Thanks in advance for your help! I'm sure it'll be ok.

Let's assume your plant is in good health and happy where it is growing. . . Then have no fear. You can trim 'jade' almost any time and as much as you want. However it is not a good idea to cut off all the leaves on any branch. Keep at least two leaves on each branch. Biggest problem with jade is overwatering.

To keep it small remember to take it out of the pot and cut off some of the outer roots as well.
