Japanese Maple Bonsai Trees are best known for their unique leaf shape and seasonal changes.
Due to their deciduous nature, maple trees lose their leaves during the winter and sprout back during the spring.

Japanese maples do lose their leaves. Typically, this beautiful maple will shed its leaves during Autumn in April and May.  This happens in Autumn when the days become shorter and the changes in the temperature become cooler.  The Maple Tree leaves change colour from green to yellow and orange, this is their  Autumn splendour that maples are so famous for.
If you begin to notice your Japanese maple drop its leaves during other months, there might be a problem with its growing conditions. A lack of water is often to blame, so make sure to check your tree's soil regularly.
Maple Bonsai trees thrive best with natural sunlight and living outdoors. We recommend filtered natural sunlight. If placed in full sun, take care to manage your watering to prevent your tree from drying out. Also, full sunlight and warmer conditions can lead to some leaf burn.
Water regularly to avoid the soil from completely drying out.
Maple bonsai trees 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. Keep the Maple moist at all times.

This maple was photographed during the growing season hence why it still has its leaves.
If this Bonsai is purchased in the winter  / cooler months it may have no leave or minimal leaves.
Be patient, soon you will be fortunate enough to watch your Bonsai grow leaves from September.

Apply Bonsai Boy's Plant Nourishment fertiliser during the growing season.
