General information: A very small genus of tropical tree which was once referred to (and still often listed as) Carmona. The most widely known Ehretia species is the Fukien tea, a tropical shrub originating in Southern China and other parts of Southeast Asia. It is very popular for bonsai in China, but not a traditional favorite in Japan. It can be grown outdoors in warm climates, but is quite popular as an indoor bonsai.
Lighting: Filtered lighting through a windowsill or lanai/screen porch
Watering: Keep well watered, reducing watering only slightly in winter. Never allow to stand in water, or
allow the soil to dry out completely.
