Japanese Maple Bonsai do really well in sunny and airy locations, but when temperatures rise to 85 °F (30 °C) or above, it should be placed somewhere with indirect sunlight to prevent the sun from damaging the leaves. The Japanese Maple is frost hardy, even when trained as a Bonsai, but when temperatures drop below 15 °F (-10 °C), it should be protected, for example by being placed in a cold-frame.
Japanese maple bonsai are relatively easy to care for and make great bonsai for beginners and professionals alike. They are characterized by a moderate growth rate and can be easily trained through regular pruning and wiring.
