The Snow Rose (Serissa Japonica) is an exquisite Bonsai. Known for its year-round blossoming white flowers and intricate and interesting root structure, this a very desirable Bonsai.
Grown mainly outdoors in the tropics, in Canada, the Snow Rose will do very well indoors. The Snow Rose does enjoy lots of sunlight, but be careful not to place it too close to a window where the temperature fluctuations can have a negative effect on the Snow Rose. If you cannot provide the Snow Rose with 8-10 hours of sunlight a day (not direct sunlight), then consider purchasing a small inexpensive grow light to supplement natural light.
The Snow Rose is quick to express its satisfaction with flowers or it's dissatisfaction by turning its leaves yellow and maybe even shedding them. If the Snow Rose is not happy, check the location of the Bonsai and make sure it's getting enough light and the temperature is stable. When watering, make sure the soil is almost dry and then give the Snow Rose a good long drink. (See our watering instructions here).
Being a vigorous grower, the Snow Rose does very well with pruning and training. Check the pot every 1-2 years to see if the Bonsai has become pot bound and requires re-potting.
