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!.

Japanese Shimpaku. This is the type of Juniper that the Japanese use for their Bonsai. It has mature foliage, which means it has the fatty, soft tipped type rather than the needle type. It has exfoliating bark which means it does slough off as do older trees. Slow Growing, but oh so beautiful. Shimpaku means "juniper" in Japanese.

I bought two trees for my Grandmother's 80th birthday gift; she recently became interested in bonsai and I hoped they would make decent practice specimens. She said that they were indeed great trees and she was very pleased with the gift!
Thank you for the exceptional customer service!!!

Best Regards,

I purchased several Japenese Shimpaku Bonsai Trees along with the 101 Essential Tips Bonsai book and the mini leaf shear/scissor to give to family elders at a gathering to sybolize the elders being the roots of our family tree. The gifts were presented to the elders and they loved them! These were the perfect items in my opinion to give to beginners. Not only did the gifts go over well with the family but the knowledge, expertise & professional customer service from Brandon was awesome! I recommended Dallas Bonsai to all of the family and also to friends who may be interested in loving a bonsai. Thank you!

Arrived in great condition. I can tell the people at Dallas Bonsai care about their trees & want to make sure they arrive healthy. I believe the cuttings were old foliage pads from a much larger Shimpaku bonsai. I planted thm in a sunny spot & have given them a nice sip of water in the morning & evening for the 1st 2 weeks to help them get established. 3rd week a sip of water in th evening. Nxt week evry other day & no more. I've read they're very drought tolerant after they're settled in. I hope they grow well for me & make beautiful bonsai one day
