  8. Place in a sunny spot: Bonsai trees need plenty of sunlight to thrive. Place them in a spot that gets at least 6 hours of sunlight a day.
  9. Protect from pests and diseases: Bonsai trees are susceptible to pests and diseases. It is important to inspect them regularly and take steps to prevent problems.
  10. Be patient: Caring for a bonsai tree takes time and patience. It is a rewarding hobby, but it is not for everyone.
