Important things that you should learn include the time of year the maple is dormant, what temperatures the maple can tolerate, and what pruning needs done in order to keep your tree healthy. A maple bonsai has the same care rules as a fully grown maple of the same species. In addition to this, a maple bonsai needs additional care due to the fact that it is grown in such a small pot. 

There are some supplies that you will need when growing bonsai. You will need a good soil for your tree, a proper pot with good drainage, and the basic tools for working wiring and trimming your tree. This typically is a minor investment, and most of the supplies will last you for several years. Depending on the type of bonsai you are growing, you may need to invest in other materials, especially for trees that require more delicate care. 

It is for this reason that many bamboo species cannot thrive in northern climates unless they are kept indoors. For beginners, bamboo bonsai is extremely rewarding due to the fact that the plants are so quick to grow. A new grower can start a plant and see a large amount of growth within the first year of owning the plant. 

Suitable for the standard bonsai design, as well as root over rock styles, the ficus bonsai is a versatile, hardy tree that is relatively easy to care for. It can be kept indoors or outdoors, although some care is required if you intend on keeping ficus bonsai indoors. Like many plants, ficus bonsai trees require a period of dormancy, where the plant is given time to recover from the blooming and growing season. 

As they are fairly easy to care for as long as you pay attention to the plant's dormancy period, growers of any level can enjoy this tree.

The more familiar you are with the quirks of any piece of equipment you use, the more efficient you are at using the item. This is particularly important for those who have to tend to a lot of plants. The more bonsai one owns, the more time is saved by not having to fight with poor quality gear. When you are buying through a bonsai sale, most of the goods being sold will be a year old, possibly several years old.
