The Juniper is probably one of the most iconic and popular tree types used in Bonsai Art. Junipers are great as outdoor trees and are very hardy trees. Making them the top recommendation for someone starting their Bonsai journey. This is the perfect tree for the beginner Bonsai Artist.

Please see our Choosing a Bonsai page, for the age and details regarding the different stages of our Bonsai (Baby, Young, Adult & Mature).
Watering the juniper is easy as this Bonsai prefers drying out before it's next watering. Although during the summer months a humidity tray or weekly misting can help the growth. Junipers under 10 should be re-potted every 2-3 years. Older Junipers can be re-potted every 3-5 years. When repotting as with most Bonsai, trimming back the roots is recommended.
