Pomegranate bonsai: symbol of fertility

The bonsai version of Pomegranate is one of the most sought after and appreciated by the bonsaists. Indeed, it adapts to different modeling techniques thanks to the hardness of its wood and its vigorous growth. This plant is also able to withstand the drastic pruning and constant stapling of the buds. Its pleasant appearance is given by the thin branches and the perfect shape of the deciduous leaves. During warm months beauty of the pomegranate explodes with the flowering and the subsequent birth of the bright red fruits. During winter, despite leaves fall, pomegranate looks fascinating given the twisted shapes drawn by its trunk. Pomegranate flowers are hermaphrodites and grow in the younger branches, while the fruits are called balaustas and resemble spherical giant berries. Inside they contain white seeds surrounded by a juicy red colored flesh characterized by important nutritive properties.

Pomegranate bonsai loves warm-temperate climate and sunny environments, so in winter it must be repaired in a closed environment or covered with non-woven fabric.

As for watering, this plant needs abundant water, which must be poured a little at a time waiting for it to be absorbed completely from the soil at each watering, to prevent the leaves from drying out and that the flowers do not grow.

The best soil for the pomegranate must consist of akadama, universal soil, red clay and sand. It is recommended to dedicate to the plant a vase large enough to collect its roots to meet its fast growth. Every two / three years must be repotted or anyway whenever the bonsai needs space.

Pruning must be done before the beginning of spring, or before flowering. The apical shoots, on the other hand, must be removed during the vegetative season when the bonsai has no leaves. It is very important to constantly remove the smaller branches to avoid excess growth.
