Watering Bonsai during vacations

Watering Bonsai during vacations when you are not at home is an issue for almost all hobbyists.  Bonsai can stay without water for a few days.  However, if you are planning to go out for more than a week, you may have to make arrangements.
  • If you have the plant in a pot or container, you can hand over the bonsai to your friend or neighbour with instructions on watering it.
  • If you have a planted bonsai in your garden, you can ask someone to come over once in two days and water the plants.
  • Special timers which can be connected to sprinklers are available which can release small quantities of water at regular intervals.
