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!

Purchased as a gift for my husband- he loves it and has already repotted and started training his juniper. However I wish there was more information included care of this particular species- in the “101 tips” book there’s no info about light/temperature requirements for the juniper. Wish I’d known in advance that it’s an outdoor bonsai since we live in an upstairs apartment..
Either way, very satisfied with customer service- if you purchase this kit for a beginner I’d recommend getting an additional, more detailed book about bonsai care.
Alright

It was a great starter kit. The 101 essential tips on bonsai by DK is a great book, I already have a bigger book on bonsai by them and they are really good on information. I was so happy with my order of a juniper I quickly ordered a boxwood and some plastic bonsai pots for an awesome price.
Fantastic

I purchased the juniper for my father as a Christmas gift. He absolutely loves it. I helped him re-pot it in the beautiful blue ceramic pot. He is so very happy with it.
I am going to order one for myself now. My dad and I have found our new hobby!
Thank you Dallas Bonsai- you are a class act.

Sincerely

This was my first bonsai purchase and I couldn't be happier. All of the items that came with this kit (juniper, pot, tray, etc.) were high quality and safely shipped. Everything was included to get me started and Dallas Bonsai responded quickly to my inquiry about fertilizing. I will be doing a regular business with this company in the future.
Perfect Beginner Bonsai

Bought this little gem for my sister for her birthday. Aside from a shipping SNAFU {my fault} & the choice of clippers included {not what was shown in the photo} it was a beautiful little tree that arrived in beautiful shape! Even after a week & a half in the box! So happy to see the manual is written by Harry Tomlinson, my favourite Bonsai author! Exceptional quality w/ such a great price!
Fun little kit
