Malus is one of the most used plants in bonsai cultivation because of its generous blooming, the small edible apples it generates, its fast growth as well as the fact that it is rarely affected by diseases or parasites. It belongs to the same family of the apples we normally eat and it blooms prematurely in spring: the ancient pink buds open up in spring, generating pretty, beautifully-scented little white flowers, which have a 3-5 cm diameter. The fruits originating from the pollinated flowers boast all the autumn colours tonalities and stay attached to the branches for al long time. Despite being a rural, long-lived plant, the following simple instructions will ensure your Malus bonsai grows healthy and luxuriant: choose a well lit spot to place it, but make sure you protect it from the hot summer sun rays; water it regularly and frequently between spring and autumn, even twice daily; choose a substratum that can guarantee good draining and always remember to use a good slow-release, phosphor-rich fertiliser. You will soon witness how easy and quick it is to grow your own miniature apple tree and to enjoy its spectacular blooms.
