Care Information

 
Pruning Tips:
The Oak bonsai can be pruned by cutting the leaves back as the branches become lignified or hardened with wood. The best times to make cuts is during early spring and late summer.

Fertilizing:
We recommend fertilizing your tree every month with a bonsai fertilizer. Time release granules are the easiest to use and can be added every season. Reduce the amount of fertilizer during the winter. Use a balanced fertilizer for best results. Take care to not over-fertilize as this can cause your leaves to burn.

Lighting:
Oak Bonsai trees thrive best with natural filtered sunlight. Foliage will grow quickly during the growing seasons, spring and fall.

Temperature Requirements:
Oak bonsai are evergreen trees. They thrive in both warm and cold conditions. They are very hardy to many climates and conditions.

Watering Requirements:
Oak Bonsai require moderate watering. We recommend using a soft spray to soak the soil. Ensure that water penetrates not only the topsoil but also into the roots by checking that draining is occurring on the bottom of the pot. Oak bonsai enjoy more moist conditions.

Repotting:
Oaks should be repotted during early spring for highest success rates. During repotting, we recommend less aggressive root pruning as the Oak bonsai does not like to have its roots disturbed too much. Repot your Oak as the tree outgrows the pot.

Outdoor:
Oaks thrive the best in outdoor environments. Oak can tolerate very cold conditions.

30 Day Plant Policy

30 Day Plant Replacement:
We understand that not everyone has a green thumb, so if your prized tree doesn't agree with you within 30 days, we'll send one replacement tree to you for free. We'll even cover the shipping cost for getting that new plant to you, which means all you need to do is give us a call. :)

Unlike most other websites that only offer a 3-day or 7-day policy, we're giving you a whole month to ease your mind that you've got a second chance to make the tree thrive. Look for the seal on the product page that indicates the product qualifies for our 30 day replacement policy.

How it Works:
When you receive your plant, care for it as you would based on the enclosed care instructions. If things aren't looking that great, give us a ring and we'll try to troubleshoot the issue. If after our recommendations, it still doesn't look like the plant will make it, we'll go ahead and send you a new tree. Our hope is that the experience you've gained from the first tree will ensure that the second tree will live on happily. Of course, we'll always provide help and support for that one too.
