9 years old old mulberry trees with Edible berries. Perfect bonsai for both indoor and outdoor conditions.
The mulberry fruit is a multiple fruit, 2–3 cm long. Immature fruits are white, green, or pale yellow. In most species, the fruits turn pink then red while ripening, then dark purple or black and have a sweet flavor when fully ripe.
Placement: The Mulberry will thrive indoors in high light and appreciates being kept outdoors during the spring and summer. When temperatures drops below 7 degrees Celsius in the night or in the winter we suggest that you place the tree indoor on a windowsill.
Sunlight: Strong Indirect sunlight, and preferably more than 6 hours of sunlight. Avoid sunlight that is too bright (tips: if you have a window facing the south with bright & direct sunlight, place the plant a little away from the window, or use a transparent curtain to partially block the light).
Water: water frequently (especially in the summer) and not let the soil be dried out. Around 2 times a week, but can be more or less frequent depending on humidity levels and amount of light received. Watering the plant less frequently in the winter.
The best practice is to use your finger to feel the soil, it should not be overly soggy or overly dry. It should be slightly moist with the top layer of soil only a bit dry.
How to water: immerse the entire bonsai plant in a bucket or basin of water for about 10 minutes. Once the air bubbles have risen to the top, the bonsai has absorbed enough water.
Fertilizer: add a bit of bonsai plant food during growing seasons every few weeks will be appreciated by your bonsai. No plant food is necessary in the winter.
