Caring for a Japanese Zelkova Bonsai, especially one that comes with a ceramic decorative pot, requires attention to both the tree and its container. Here are some care instructions:

1. Placement:

  • Light: Place the bonsai in a location with bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid direct sunlight for extended periods, especially during the hottest part of the day.
  • Temperature: Japanese Zelkova trees prefer cool to mild temperatures. Protect the bonsai from extreme heat or cold.

2. Watering:

  • Frequency: Water the bonsai when the topsoil feels slightly dry to the touch. Do not let the soil dry out completely, but avoid overwatering.
  • Watering Technique: Water thoroughly until water starts draining from the bottom of the pot. Ensure proper drainage to prevent root rot.

3. Humidity:

  • Humidity Tray: Place a humidity tray filled with water and small stones beneath the bonsai to enhance humidity levels, especially in dry indoor environments.
  • Misting: Regularly mist the foliage to maintain adequate humidity, particularly during dry seasons.

4. Fertilization:

  • Seasonal Fertilizing: Feed the bonsai with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or stop fertilizing during the dormant season (fall and winter).
  • Application: Follow the recommended dosage on the fertilizer packaging, and apply every 2-4 weeks during the growing season.

5. Pruning and Training:

  • Regular Pruning: Trim new growth to maintain the bonsai's shape and encourage branching.
  • Wiring: Use soft wires to shape and train branches. Check and adjust the wires regularly to prevent them from cutting into the bark.

6. Soil:

  • Well-Draining Soil: Repot the bonsai every 2-3 years using well-draining bonsai soil. This helps prevent compacted soil and encourages root health.

7. Pest Control:

  • Inspect Regularly: Keep an eye out for pests such as aphids or spider mites. If detected, treat promptly with appropriate measures, such as insecticidal soap.

8. Ceramic Pot Care:

  • Drainage Holes: Ensure the decorative pot has drainage holes to prevent waterlogging.
  • Protection: Protect the ceramic pot from extreme temperature changes, as sudden shifts can cause cracking.
