Once the extremely bad weather has past, your juniper bonsai should be sent back outside so it can remain in dormancy. Juniper bonsai are extremely common, as this type of tree is so easy to care for and train. They grow quickly, allowing people to see their hard work progress, making this an excellent tree for beginners. 

When setting wires, good tweezers can make the difference between a good placement and your branch being scarred from bad placement of wires. You can buy bonsai tools from all across the world, although the vast majority of high quality, recommended bonsai tools come from Japan. When you are purchasing your bonsai tools, you can purchase low quality tools that are extremely inexpensive, or you can purchase high end tools that are designed to last for years. 

Root maintenance and proper trimming is a requirement in order to maintain the health of the tree. When looking for this information, you should use resources specific to the maple bonsai tree, as typical tree tending does not include this information. Some forms of maple bonsai do not take well to extremely cold temperatures. 

Bamboo Bonsai Bamboo bonsai is an extremely popular, easy to care for bonsai that allows growers of all skill levels work with a fast growing, beautiful plant. The most common type of bamboo bonsai found in homes is the 'lucky' bamboo, which is believed to bring luck to their owners. This variety of bamboo is hardy, and can be grown indoors or outdoors, provided that the bamboo is protected against frost. 

As the tree can reproduce and spread itself through the root system, pruning of the roots is required in order to keep the bonsai healthy. Failure to do so can cause problems in the plant, drastically shortening the lifespan of the tree. As these trees can live to be over two hundred years old, it is important that the pruning and root care is properly done. 

You will not get instant results from this type of bonsai tree. You will need to take your time and carefully plan your bonsai design, and realize that these trees may take well over ten years before you will see results. However, once designed, they make an excellent part of any bonsai collection. 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.
