The leading cause of death in juniper bonsai is that people try to keep this pine indoors. It should be kept outdoors whenever possible, and only brought in during the harshest parts of winter or during snow storms that would suffocate the plant. Once the extremely bad weather has past, your juniper bonsai should be sent back outside so it can remain in dormancy. 

Many growers have witnessed a tree die within several days due to quick exposure to cold temperatures. If you live somewhere cold, it is vital that you store the Baobab bonsai somewhere the plant can remain warm throughout the winter season. In addition, the Baobab bonsai should receive no water at all during the winter, as watering them in winter will cause root rot and your plant will die. 

The four basic tools include a bonsai shear/scissor, a broom, a rake and tweezers. Typically, the highest quality tools for bonsai care are from Japan, where there are companies dedicated to the building of these tools. When selecting your bonsai tools, there are a few things that you will want to keep in mind. 

This takes a subtle amount of pressure on the branch of the tree, and consideration on how to place the wires. Wires that are placed incorrectly may permanently scar the tree, damaging the overall appearance of the tree, as well as impacting its lifespan. When placing your wires, you should be careful not to place them too close between where the branch and the trunk meet, but not so far that it encourages the branch to break. 

Moss can suffocate or otherwise damage your tree, potentially resulting in its death. Grass an other weeds should also be removed immediately from your bonsai plants, as these will remove needed nutrients from your bonsai. If you are interested in growing several bonsai plants in the same pot, you will need to take extra care with them. 

While most beginners only work with the four basic bonsai supplies, advanced users will use wire pliers, and special concave clippers to help shape and grow their bonsai. As you become more skilled with your bonsai, you will find you need more of these bonsai supplies in order to get the style of bonsai you desire.
