When you place fertilizer, whether it be organic or chemical granules, directly onto the surface around your bonsai tree you will stunt the growth of moss or even kill it.
These plastic fertilizer covers are designed to hold whatever fertilizer you wish to provide to your bonsai trees, elevating the fertilizer from the surface of your soil. This reduces the negative effect the fertilizer has on the moss.
The lid enables you to pour your fertilizer into the receptacle and close it, preventing it from being eaten by birds, rats or other animals.
The fertilizer holders are riddled with holes on the top, sides and bottom; through which water can flow and carry trace amounts of your fertilizer with to the bonsai tree's roots. Although these holes will allow water through it will prevent granules of fertilizer from being washed away. However fine, powder type of water soluble fertilizers will be washed away and are not actually designed to be applied in this manner.
The brown fertilizer covers are manufactured from a plastic which will withstand the strong sun and its UV rays, here in South Africa. The colour makes it blend aesthetically as well.

I have been using Bonsai Boost for a number of years now with great success. I thought it time to 'neaten' it up a bit with the Bonsai Tree Fertilizer Containers. They work very well and gives a clean feel to all the trees.
This was the second time I’ve bought these containers as I quickly ran out of “stock” after seeing the results of concentrating an organic fertilizer and planting them in my little collection of bonsai trees. While the fertilizer delivered the good stuff to my trees, the containers kept the flies at bay and I’m really happy with my purchase. Will recommend these containers any day. Regards. Wayne Stevens.
These compact little space saving fertilizer containers are just perfect for their purpose. Matched with the little "tea bag" like prepacked fertilizer you get from Bonsai Tree too - you can't go wrong!
