Protect Your Tropicals Now

Your Tropical bonsai are probably feeling discomfort now that the temperatures have dipped below 50.  These are Ficus, Joboticaba, Jasmine, Fukian tea, Jade, and others that grow in Zone 8 or higher. Initially you might shuffle them in and out if you don't have too many.  The area you place them in might be a garage, a greenhouse or a sunny window.  But when the temperatures are mostly below 50 it will be time to bring them in.
