SAFLAX - Bonsai - Pink Powder Puff - Calliandra haematocephala - 10 seeds - With potting substrate for better cultivation

Flourishing Indoor Bonsai with collapsing pinnate leaves at night

With germfree and permeable potting substrate based on coconut fiber for suceessful cultivation.

Most characteristic for this beautiful bush are the large blossoms. They consist of a dense tuft of long threads, which tower over the deep-laying, red coloured sepals of each blossom, giving them the appearance of a powder puff or brush. Its eye-catching and juicy blossoms spring up all the year and attract many butterflies as well as hummingbirds in its natural habitat. The plant grows slender and upright at first and then builds up a fluffy crown with pinnate leaves. To protect itself from humidification and heat loss, the Pink Powder Puff folds up its pinnate leaves in the evening. It is a rather carefree bonsai plant.

Natural Location: Its natural habitat is the tropical and sub-tropical America. The Pink Powder Puff is widespread all the way from New Mexico to Chile.

Cultivation: Seed propagation indoors is possible throughout the year. To increase the germinability, you can place the seeds in warm water for 24 hours. Press the seeds gently in the moist potting compost, put just a little compost earth on top and cover the seed container with clear film to prevent the earth from drying out. Don't forget to make some holes in the clear film and take it every second or third day completely off for about 2 hours. That way you avoid mold formation on your potting compost. Place the seed container somewhere bright and warm with a temperature about 20° C and keep the earth moist but not wet. The seedlings usually come up after two to three weeks.

Place: The Pink Powder Puff should be kept in a bright and/or sunny spot to flourish fully and nicely. It should only be protected from the hot midday sun during the summer.

Care: Water the plant consistently with preferably lime-deficient water and avoid waterlogging, especially in the saucer. From April until October, it is recommended giving fluid fertilizer for bonsai plants every three weeks. Prune your plant regularly, as soon as it develops five to six leaf pairs, by cutting it back to only one or two pairs - that way you will get a well-branched bonsai. Jungpflanzen sollten Sie j?hrlich, ?ltere Pflanzen alle vier Jahre umtopfen.

During Winter: During hibernation keep your Pink Powder Puff in a bright place with a temperature between 10? and 15° Celsius. Give less water and after casting the leaves only as much as to prevent the clotted roots from drying out. Fertilizing won't be necessary during winter. When it is kept in a warmer place, you should spray the plant regularly and provide sufficient air circulation to prevent pest infestation due to the dry air caused by the heater in the room.

Bonsai ability: Yes
