Growing and shaping bonsai trees as an indoor hobby is one best stress relieving activities a person can do. Just learning this Chinese and Japanese art form of shaping trees can be rewarding. It also considered to be an ideal indoor activity for anyone interested in propagation and cultivation of indoor plants and trees. 

Most people begin by growing a ficus tree or a juniper, normally because they have been given one as a gift. These tiny trees are ideal for decorating small spaces in your home or office.

Beginner bonsai trees for sale

As soon as you discover how easy to grow bonsai are, your collection will start to grow. To start an indoor garden of trees, many growers recommend ficus trees and junipers as a first choice.

 My personal choice has always been a Chinese elm bonsai or a Hawaiian umbrella  tree, because they don't require as much natural sunlight and do well in poor lighting areas. Outdoor bonsai are best used as ornamental display trees on your patio.

information for beginners

 Make your own, start from seeds or buy one that has been shape for you.

Very popular bonsai are  Fukien tea trees, these are used quite frequently in decorating, as a plant centrepiece for a kitchen or dining room table. Junipers and boxwood trees are considered best for beginners. These are easy to shape into a unique style that is your own.

As a beginner I started with a cascading juniper bonsai, they are easy to care for and prune.  I found a Juniper  on sale from an online nursery that had a shape already started for me.  After awhile I became more interested in indoor bonsai, especially flowering plants, because of the beauty of their blossoms. I was also quite interested in feng shui and how it related to plants and trees in the home.

Buying a Japanese bonsai tree as a beginner and learning to shape the tree properly, was easier than I thought.  I am now starting to take my own cuttings and learning how to grow my own, it was easier than starting with seeds. I now sell my specimens at garage sales.

  • If you don't have a suitable place to grow bonsai outdoors, buy a tree specifically recommended for indoors. The most popular is Hawaiian umbrella  tree which have tiny umbrella shaped leaves or a Brazilian rain tree which has leaves that fold up at night, which looks very cool.
  • You can always find a tree on sale, but should be more concerned with the quality and type of tree you want. Just because a tree is older or classified as one of a kind, that doesn't mean its harder to grow. Read more information about specimen bonsai trees.
