Humidity/drip trays

Your tree is going to have water that will drain from the bottom and for this reasoning, a drip tray is needed. The great thing about having a drip tray is that it helps to hold and take care of any potential messes. 

This also means that it’s way less work for you because you can water your plant right then and there and not have to worry about taking it back and forth to a sink. 

Watering Bonsai Trees is extremely important so make certain that you’re following the care directions to keep them hydrated and moist. 

Grow light systems

Talk about a great way to give your tree (and other plants) the “sunlight” that they need to grow! Even if you live in a space that you can’t get natural light for your plants or trees, using a grow light system is an awesome resource to have.

All you have to do is plug it in and give your plants the “natural” light that they need. This will help them stay healthy, happy, and give them a boost of energy to continue to grow and bloom. 

Since you’re dealing with small trees, using a desktop grow light is more than enough for your needs.

Bonsai tools

As you know, part of maintaining your Bonsai tree is that you need to be ready to do a bit of maintenance to the branches and tree as it grows. As long as you have the right tools, this shouldn’t be hard to do.
