Requiring good indirect sunlight and moist watering conditions, the Japanese Juniper Bonsai is best suited for patios or outdoor areas.

Bonsai Care & Instruction
These are general guidelines for bonsai care. Bonsai requires a good balance of light and water.
The easiest way to tell when your bonsai needs water is to stick your finger through the moss to the soil. If the soil is moist or cool to the touch, then do not water your bonsai. When the soil on top is neutral in terms of moisture, it will be slightly dry to the touch. It is time to water your bonsai. Depending on the amount of light and temperature your tree receives, this may mean watering your tree daily or every few days. Never allow the soil to dry out.
Watering should always be through the foliage, using a gentle spray such as a garden hose sprayer or sink sprayer. Spray the foliage and all around the top of the container until you see water dripping through the holes of the container. Remember, insects breathe through their skin so water is an excellent way to keep insects and dust off your tree. Insects are seldom attracted to healthy plants!
Where to keep Bonsai
Bonsai should be kept in a well-lighted area shaded from the direct sun. Some excellent locations include a covered patio or porch which has filtered sunlight, outside under a big, shade tree or in a specially designed nursery shade-house. Bonsai may be brought inside for short periods, three or four days, and then placed outside for an equal period of time.
Even though most bonsai can withstand temperatures down to freezing and colder, we recommend that they be brought inside during severely cold weather and kept in a room near a window without the drying effects of a heater. In northern climates a well-lighted garage or a room in the house that is not heated are acceptable locations for the severe winter months as this will force your tree to go into a dormant state.
Please remember that bonsai is not a house plant and needs a balanced diet of fresh air, natural light and water to remain healthy.
