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!

Trident Maple Bonsai

Acer buergerianum

Acer buergerianum is a deciduous maple native to China, Japan, and Korea. In its natural environment this tree can grow to 20-30 feet in height and the same size in width. The tree can be distinguished from Acer palmatum by its three-lobed leaves, as opposed to five on the leaves of the Japanese Maple.

The Trident Maple has an airy crown of foliage comprised of glossy green three-pointed leaves that turn gorgeous shades of yellow, orange, and red in autumn. The trunk is thick and richly textured in peeling orange-brown bark, a trait that draws bonsai enthusiasts to this particular maple. The roots readily form interesting gnarls perfect for exposed root styles. In April to May the tree develops modest yellow-green blooms.

Pot: Ceramic Pot
Height: Approximately 18" – 24”
Age: 9 years

I recently purchased this Trident Maple Bonsai Tree, and was very impressed about everything with it. The packaging was done well. It seemed to have been recently pruned, so it gives me time to do my research more on pruning. The price was also fantastic compared to other places I have looked. Shipping was very fast, and no damage was done to the plant. It did come with a humidity tray, which I wasnt aware of so I purchased one with it, so I was going to use the extra tray, but it is cracked so I wont be able to use it after all. Great communication from seller as well. I look forward to doing more business after I get a better understanding on Bonsai. Thank you.
