Our Juniper bonsai trees have been trained into assorted styles so they're ready for your TLC and future creative input! Most trees will be "windswept" or "upright as seen in photos, but we can also accommodate any special requests, e.g. "cascade".

All trees come top dressed with fine decorative gravel (premium red lava rock) and an accent mineral (typically Snowflake Obsidian, Firework Obsidian, or Apache Tears Obsidian). Accent minerals are not only beautiful, they're also useful for checking on soil moisture without disturbing the top dressing.

Snowflake and Firework Obsidian are relatively rare forms of volcanic glass that display interesting white to red patterns. They're variations of Obsidian formed when volcanic lava cools more slowly than normal, allowing the formation of needle-shaped cristobalite, a type of quartz crystal. Some collectors believe these minerals have healing, calming, and soothing spiritual properties. Apache Tears are a form of obsidian found embedded in cooled lava flows alongside gray perlite. Legend says that Apache Tears are the fallen tears of the wives of perished Apache warriors, turned to stone upon hitting the ground.

🌱 Your choice of traditional glazed ceramic bonsai pot, each one measuring approximately 5x4x2". Pot colors are rotating, so only colors in the drop down menu are currently available, however the "Surprise me!" option may include pots not pictured on this listing. Please embrace slight differences in color/shape as these pots are hand-crafted.

We also offer our untrained pre-bonsai plants in 4" plastic nursery pots *which do not come with a top dressing or accent mineral* in case you have your own pot picked out at home or have your own artistic vision for starting with a blank-slate.

💧 For an even happier and healthier plant, we strongly recommend the use of a humidity tray. Our 6.5x4.75" polymer humidity trays as seen in photos #1 and #9 are Black Pearl color and come with the perfect amount of river pebbles. Humidity trays are meant to be filled with water on a regular basis. The evaporating water increases ambient humidity to your tree's foliage. Use of river pebbles speeds up the evaporation rate, making for an even more effective setup. Humidity trays are also useful for catching runoff when you water your new bonsai plant pal!

🧪 Add professional grade bonsai fertilizer granules directly from this listing to save $6 off our standard pricing! Natural/organic bonsai fertilizer promotes growth of symbiotic mycorrhizae fungus resulting in healthier bonsai trees - our fertilizer is actually inoculated with Mycorrhizae propagules! Chemical fertilizers kill off beneficial bacteria, fungus, and insects that keep bonsai trees thriving. 4-4-4 NPK formulation, 5oz bag.

Shipping can be rough! After delivery...

What's normal?
• Wet contents (we do this on purpose, Juniper loves humidity)
• The typical procumbent "bald spot" hump for which Juniper Procumbens is named (new foliage typically fills this in over time)
• Unpleasant-to-the-touch foliage (this is a conifer, like Christmas trees!)
• Dead foliage low/central in the canopy, part of the natural growth process - time to grab your pruning snips!
• Orange-brown tips - these are sometimes pinecones and other times an indication of branching foliage
• Dark blue-green to bright lime-green foliage

What's not normal? (Message us with pics ASAP)
• Brittle/crunchy foliage which falls off easily when touched
• Large amounts of gray, orange, or yellow foliage
