Juniper Bonsai

Recognized as one of the most popular types of bonsai, Juniper has been a favorite of many bonsai enthusiasts for its impressive appearance. It’s great for beginners, too, since it’s easy to care for and won’t mind if you pay little attention. Depending on the type of Juniper Bonsai, the leaves can either be scale-like or needle-like. Its small form, combined with lush greenery, adds a dramatic display to your space.

Plant Type

Foliage plants are recognized for their striking, decorative, and show-stopping leaves. Add them to your home for a touch of greenery and cleaner air.

Plant Feature

Full Sun
Place these plants in sunny spots where they can have full, direct light, and they will showcase luscious greenery and lovely blooms. Many of them are tolerant of drought and won’t mind if you miss your watering schedule.

Light Care

High Light
High light plants require full sunlight to assume their full potential, which means they need at least 6 hours of direct, bright light each day. The brightest spot in your home is the best place to put them.

Water Care

Medium Water
Plants with medium or moderate water needs should be watered once or twice a week. They need moist soil throughout the growing season for optimum growth and flowering. Water these plants when the soil is dry to touch.

Fertilizer Care 

Low Fertilizer
These plants would appreciate a regular application of fertilizer during the growing season. They aren’t heavy feeders, and feeding at low rates is enough for these low-fertilizer plants to grow well.



Plant Care Tips

Commonly known as Japanese Garden Juniper, this variety is a common bonsai. Will grow up to 25cm tall and up to 200cm spread. Multiple transplantings must occur as the plant grows. Always pot one size larger when transplanting. We recommend our All Purpose Potting soil.


The Japanese Garden Bonsai is, unsurprisingly, native to southern Japan. It thrives in mountain and coastal areas.
