They need to be in an outdoor environment in order to grow into healthy bonsai plants for you to enjoy. > > > > The Shimpaku Juniper Bonsai likes to have a lot of sunlight, so make sure you have it in an area outside where it will be exposed to semi-direct sunlight every day. Although it is important for you to water your Shimpaku Juniper Bonsai regularly, it responds best if the bonsai soil is allowed to dry out a bit between watering. That is not to say you should allow the soil to dry out fully, but to make sure the soil is not soggy or too moist before watering it again. > > > > Feeding your Shimpaku Juniper Bonsai during its growing season is very important. It is good to use a bonsai fertilizer with a high level of nitrogen when the plant is young. The best time to feed your Shimpaku Juniper Bonsai is during the hottest part of its growing season, as this is when it needs the most nutrients. > > > > In order for the fine foliage of a Shimpaku Juniper Bonsai to develop well, pinching is required during growing. This is the act of literally pinching the new tender shoots with your fingers to stimulate growth. Be aware that although there are special bonsai tools out there for things like pruning and wiring your bonsai into shape, cutting the leaves of your Shimpaku Juniper Bonsai will scissors will cause them to turn brown. > > > > The Shimpaku Juniper Bonsai becomes dormant during winter months. For this reason it is best to do your wiring of the plant during autumn. This way the newly wired branches have a chance to get used to the shape your design without any resistance from a growing bonsai plant. One thing to be careful of if you are wiring during spring or summer is that the wire is not cutting into the bark of the Shimpaku Juniper Bonsai. If this is happening you need to remove the wire immediately as this is potentially very damaging to the plant. > > > > The best time to re-pot your Shimpaku Juniper Bonsai is spring, and for new plants this should be done every year. Once the tree matures this can be done every 3-4 years. Juniper "Karate Kid" Bonsai Tree - Large

We grow the Juniper in lava-rock (pumice stone) by boring a hole in the rock and sawing flat the bottom of the stone. Since the lava-rock is porous the rock serves the same purpose as the bonsai pot. When we think of a traditional bonsai and what it should look like we think of a Juniper procumbent. They are hardy and long-lived and tolerate many adverse conditions. Popular and Unique.
