The Sophora Prostrata, also known as the Weeping False Cypress, is a beautiful and unique indoor houseplant that originates from Japan and China. In the wild, it grows as a small shrub or a tree with a weeping habit, and it is often seen in temple gardens and other sacred places. The plant is known for its delicate foliage and graceful branches, which make it a popular choice for bonsai enthusiasts. Commonly know by a wide variety of names including the Weeping False Cypress, Little Afzelia, Japanese Pagoda Tree, Japanese Sophora, Kurimoto, Pendula, Weeping Sophora, Weeping Chinese Scholar Tree or the Weeping Sophora Prostrata.

As an indoor houseplant, the Sophora Prostrata is relatively easy to care for, making it a great choice for beginner plant enthusiasts. It prefers bright, indirect light and well-draining soil that is kept consistently moist but not waterlogged. The plant also benefits from occasional misting to increase humidity levels and prevent the foliage from drying out.

To style the Sophora Prostrata as a bonsai-like plant, you can use a variety of techniques such as pruning, wiring, and shaping. Start by selecting a container that is the appropriate size for the plant and has good drainage. Then, use sharp pruning shears to trim the foliage and branches to your desired shape. You can also use wire to gently guide the branches into the desired shape, being careful not to damage the plant.

With proper care and styling, the Sophora Prostrata can be a stunning addition to any indoor space. Its delicate foliage and weeping habit make it a great choice for creating a peaceful and serene atmosphere, while its bonsai-like appearance adds a touch of elegance and sophistication. So why not bring a little bit of Japanese charm into your home with a beautiful Sophora Prostrata indoor houseplant today?

Where should I put Sophora Prostrata 

The Sophora Prostrata prefers bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves and cause damage to the plant. Therefore, it is best to place the plant near a bright window with filtered light, or in a room with bright, indirect light.

How should I water this plant?

The Sophora Prostrata likes to have consistently moist soil, but it should never be allowed to become waterlogged. Overwatering can cause root rot and other fungal diseases. Therefore, it is important to water the plant thoroughly, allowing excess water to drain out of the bottom of the pot. It is also a good idea to let the top inch of soil dry out before watering again. This will prevent overwatering and help maintain the proper moisture level in the soil.

The Sophora Prostrata prefers a humid environment, so it benefits from occasional misting. You can mist the leaves with water or place a tray of water near the plant to increase humidity levels. Happy Houseplants’ Organic Tropical Plant Dew recreates the plant's natural environment and increases the humidity, and provides the nutrients the plants need to grow and thrive indoors.

The Sophora Prostrata prefers temperatures between 15°C to 24°C. It should be kept away from cold drafts and sudden changes in temperature.

Should I feed this plant?

The Sophora Prostrata benefits from regular fertilisation during the growing season. Feed once a month in spring and summer with liquid plant food. Why not try our own vegan, organic plant food? However, it is important to follow the instructions on the fertilizer package and not over-fertilise, as this can cause damage to the plant.

To keep the Sophora Prostrata healthy and looking its best, it is important to prune it regularly. Prune any dead or damaged branches, as well as any growth that is interfering with the plant's shape or structure. You can also prune the plant to encourage new growth and maintain its shape.

Is this plant suitable if I have pets?

This plant is toxic to cats and dogs.
