General Info

This variety is native to China and South-East Asia, where they can grow up to 80 feet tall

Characterized for its small leaves with serrated edges, this variety also sheds portions of its bark as it matures

The Chinese Elm is a very popular variety among beginners, it has simple care and is very hardy


Your Chinese Elm does not like to sit with too much moisture, or experience long periods of drought

The surface of the soil should be allowed to dry, and then its time to water- ensuring the roots are well soaked

Providing a supplementary source of humidity can be beneficial, such as a humidity tray

Light Requirements

Finding a spot with high light conditions will be perfect for a Chinese Elm

During the summer you want to avoid exposure to hot afternoon sun, to avoid burning the foliage

An East facing window will keep your Chinese Elm very happy, being able to sit in the morning sun without risk of damaging the leaves
