How hard is it to care for a bonsai tree?

Bonsai trees are easier to care for than you think! They require more attention than a basic houseplant but if you follow our care guides you should have no problem keeping your tree alive and healthy.

We have a care guide just for this tree, click here to view it.

What tools & supplies do I need?

For beginners we recommend using our balanced fertilizer & vitamin combo to keep your plant healthy and that you provide clean, filtered water as required.

We also recommend a pair of our basic pruning shears to allow you to trim and shape your new tree.

Both of these essential items have been paired together in our Fujiyama Starter Kit which we recommend purchasing along with your tree giving you a complete setup. The Fujiyama Starter Kit also comes with the Bonsai 101 Essential Tips book which walks you through the basic care instructions ensuring success as a beginner!.

How long will it take to get my new tree?

Most trees are shipped every Monday or Tuesday and received by customers on Thursday or Friday. We ship trees only on Monday or Tuesday to ensure they arrive healthy!

Golden Gate Ficus

Ficus microcarpa

The ficus is one of the most recognized plant species in existence. Most people have seen a Ficus microcarpa specimen at some point in their lives – but did you know that it is actually a fig tree? Not only that but figs are not technically fruits, they are inverted flowers. But back to the bonsai – these trees have been around on planet Earth for many thousands of years, which means just having one in your home is like having a miniature piece of living history, and who wouldn’t want that?

Not only is the ficus millennial old, it is also the perfect beginner tree. You can overwater, you can underwater, and this tree will bounce right back and forgive you. If you’ve had that bonsai urge but you’ve been on the fence, the Golden Gate Ficus is a safe bet for taking the leap.

*Ficus leaves are poisonous when ingested so use caution around children and pets.

Pot: Ceramic Pot
