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!.

Arrived as advertised. Healthy without damage. Repotted in a slightly larger pot, and is doing great. No new shoots yet, but I'm optimistic. Will enjoy watching it as it grows.
So far very pleased

I ordered 2 red maple trees, they both looked happy and healthy when I took them out of the box. I have had them for 2 weeks now and they are doing very well. They were well priced and arrived perfect. Thank you .

My Red Maple arrived dormant with no leaves, but within three weeks it was budding. And now six weeks later, it has splendid foliage. Which is truly amazing considering it is now November.
I love my new tree!

I've been shopping at Dallas Bonsai for years now, always purchasing tools and supplies. I've purchased trees from other websites, but they always end up dying for one reason or another. I thought I would give purchasing from Dallas a try, and I am so happy with the result! My tree arrived safely and has been doing very well acclamating to its new home . Thanks for providing such quality products! You have a customer for life!

some of the lower leaves were brown when I got it, but hoping for the best as I care for it.
