Parrots Beak Bonsai
Botanical name: Gmelina philippensis
Parrots Beak have lovely ivy shaped foliage that reduces in size overtime. They have very compact canopies, and produces a gorgeous yellow flower. Make for a perfect Shonin Bonsai. They are fast growers and develop into a nice bonsai quickly.
During the summer you can place this tree outside to cut back on maintenance and provide ideal conditions. Bonsai trees should never be placed in full sun, and should be place in partly shady area. In the winter they need to be brought inside once the temperatures start dropping below 50 degrees. Like most other tropical bonsai it's very important to water daily.
