Celtis Africana also known as Witstinkhout (Afrikaans); umVumvu (Xhosa); uSinga lwesalukazi (Zulu); Modutu (Sotho & Tswane) and Mpopano (Venda)

 

The Celtis Africana is one of the best African trees to use as a bonsai because it can withstand frost as well as being fairly drought resistant. It does best in a soil which is rich, deep and gets plenty of water I the summer. It is a deciduous tree which is fast growing and will grow under a wide range of conditions.

 

When growing your Celtis Africana germination can take from 15 – 30 days, place your Celtis Africana seed into a tray with bonsai soil and keep moist, position your tray in  a warm but shaded area. Once your seeds become seedlings transplant them into your desired pot and keep the soil moist, your Celtis Africana will then grow fairly fast (can be more than a metre each year – with pruning and trimming your Celtis Africana will remain in bonsai form).

 

Should your Celtis Africana need to be repotted, do this in early spring when the buds begin to swell, and if you do root pruning remember to reduce the top too. Keep your transplanted Celtis Africana bonsai in shade until the Celtis Africana begins to grow. The soil can be a bonsai mix (as long as it is correctly mixed and free draining).  The leaves on the Celtis Africana can be grown in any style as long as the higher growth is pinched regulary (please note the Celtis Africana looses all its leaves in winter but it is still a beautiful form).

 

When styling your Celtis Africana wiring may be requiredto aid bending thick branches, due to the rapid growth of the Celtis Africana you will need to regularly check the wires (the bark on the Celtis Africana is smooth so wiring marks will remain for a long time).

 

During the months of spring, summer and autumn keep the Celtis Africana uniformly moist but in winter the Celtis Africana only needs enough to not dry out. You can use organic fertilizer.
