Hawaiian Umbrella Bonsai

Your Hawaiian Umbrella Bonsai should be watered thoroughly every two or three days. Never let a bonsai totally dry out. Water your bonsai properly by using a watering can or hose attachment that has a fine-spray end. You should thoroughly soak your bonsai's soil. Water should be running out of the drain holes. Misting foliage periodically is recommended, but should not be considered watering.

Green Mound Juniper Bonsai

The natural movement of the Green Mound Juniper Bonsai captures the essence that many people identify with bonsai. This outdoor bonsai is one of the easiest for beginners to maintain.

This keeps the tips of your Green Mound Juniper Bonsai from turning brown. Also keep in mind that all varieties of Juniper Bonsai thrive in full sun conditions.
