Note : The plant might differ a little than the picture as each Bonsai is created differently.
Carmona likes a bright position but avoid exposing to direct midday sunlight if possible. It does not like too much temperature fluctuations.
Keep soil moist but not water logged. Over watering can lead to leafs turning yellow and falling off.
Feed every two weeks during the growing season and every 6 weeks during dormant periods. Use a balanced fertiliser through out the year with a high nitrogen fertiliser in spring - to help with the flush of new growth
Bonsai needs sufficient bright light. Keep it near a bright window or in semi shade. In balconies keep it on the eastern side where the sun is not very harsh on them. Keep the soil for bonsai moist. Don't over water it or keep the soil very wet or it will shed the leaves and eventually cause a root rot.
