How to make a bougainvillea bonsai tree step by step | January 4, 2024


About 18 different types of plants belong to the bougainvillea genus, all native to South America and all capable of giving us a unique and wonderful show through their blooming.

These climbing shrubs can reach up to 12 meters in height and, depending on the climate, can bloom all year round. In a climate like ours, they bloom from spring until late fall.

Contrary to what it may seem, bougainvillea flowers are small and white, surrounded by bracts that take on different colors and have a paper-like texture.

Bougainvillea needs full sun in order to bloom properly. For this reason, this species should not be treated as an indoor bonsai tree.


Bougainvillea bonsai should be protected from frost and wind. In any case, do not be alarmed if the plant loses its leaves during the cold months-it is part of its life cycle.

Potting soil for bougainvillea bonsai.

You can choose a solution consisting of akadama and add 30 percent kiryzuna or kanuma.
