The Japanese Maple Tree Bonsai is one of the most dazzling bonsai trees around—a sure-to-be showstopper in your home or office. Unlike some other bonsai, this species is great for beginners, as it offers a lot of leeway in terms of care and maintenance. Its fine, delicate branches are easy to shape, making it an ideal choice for bonsai training. In the fall, the Japanese Maple Tree Bonsai’s foliage turns magnificent shades of orange, red, and gold. 

Best Locations For Growing Japanese Maple Tree Bonsai 

This bonsai variety makes a bright statement in the home or office and is great for a living room counter or office desk. You can also keep the plant outdoors on a patio or in the garden, though they cannot tolerate direct sunlight in the summertime. Mature trees can take short periods of freezing, but you should protect your plant from severe frost.

Japanese Maple Tree Bonsai Sunlight Requirements

These plants do well in a sunny and airy location, but this bonsai variety does not need as much sunlight as others. They do best in locations that receive morning and evening sun with dappled sunlight throughout the rest of the day. If temperatures reach 85 degrees or above, move your bonsai somewhere with indirect sunlight to avoid damage to the leaves.

Japanese Maple Tree Bonsai Care

Most bonsai, including the Japanese Maple Tree, do better outdoors than inside. They are adaptable to a variety of climates, but can only tolerate short periods of freezing temperatures. As such, make sure to protect your bonsai if you experience extended harsh freezing conditions.

Regular pruning is important for both the aesthetics and health of your bonsai. In the spring and summer, pinch back new shoots on a regular basis to help shape the tree and encourage branching. You should also actively prune leaves during the growing season to keep them small. Heavy pruning of main branches and stems should be saved for the late fall and winter.

Generally, this variety does not need to be re-potted often. When the tree reaches 10 years old, re-pot every three years. The best time to re-pot is in the spring just before buds have opened.

Watering Japanese Maple Tree Bonsai 

Keep your Japanese Maple Tree Bonsai evenly moist. Water daily from mid-spring to late summer and then as needed during the winter. Never allow your plant to become waterlogged, as this can lead to root rot.

Feeding Japanese Maple Tree Bonsai 

Feed this bonsai variety every two weeks during the spring and summer with an organic bonsai fertilizer or liquid fertilizer. During the fall, feed with a nitrogen-free fertilizer.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
