Mizugire is a Japanese term that literally means "termination of water supply". It refers to the situation when a bonsai pot does not have enough water, which can cause the leaves to wither or fall and the branches to die. Mizugire can also kill the tree itself if not corrected in time. To prevent Mizugire, it is important to water the bonsai regularly and check the soil moisture. Some factors that can increase the risk of Mizugire are high temperatures, low humidity, strong winds, and small pots.
