Q.Pebbles for Bonsai

Anonymous added on May 5, 2014 | Answered

I received a bougainvillea bonsai, delivered by UPS. There is a bag of loose pebbles included. Am I supposed to put them around the stem and press them into the dirt?

They may have meant for you to use them as a mulch (on top of the soil) or for drainage (below the soil). If the bonsai already came potted, then it was likely for mulch.
