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!

Satsuki Azalea - Large

Rhododendron indicum

Rhododendron indicum is a beautifully blooming bonsai with small, glossy leaves that lend themselves perfectly to almost any shaping. This Japanese native is named for the month in which it blooms (translated, Satsuki is “fifth month” or “May”). You may be asking yourself if the azalea has an identity crisis, but the truth is that as of the late 20th century botanists decided that azaleas would be lumped into the Rhododendron genus.

If you don’t want to wait through the first few boring years of growing your bonsai taller, this Satsuki is the perfect choice – we’ve already done much of the work for you. Simply keep the soil moist, give it a few hours of sunlight per day, and prune and shape to your heart’s desire. Azaleas can live for hundreds of years given ideal conditions, so with a little care this beautiful bonsai will provide you with much enjoyment for years to come
