The Superfly Bonsai Tree Starter Kit includes three very popular and common bonsai trees seeds for you to love and grow to full bonsai trees.

Bonsai is an art of patience and you can learn over time with your tree. Nothing compares to the feeling you get when you nurture a bonsai from seed to a show ready tree. This process will take many years, but you can create the exact tree you want when starting from seed. This kit is an excellent gift for a beginner that loves to grow things.

The Superfly Bonsai kit includes the seeds of Japanese Black Pine, Japanese Purple Wisteria and the Dawn Redwood. The kit was developed and instructions written by professional bonsai growers to give you the best chance possible for success. 

Level 1 Kit - This kit includes everything necessary to get your bonsai started and growing along with detailed instructions.  Level 1 kits include the seeds of three bonsai trees, coir biodegradable starter pots, expanding soil wafers, tree type plant markers, pruning shearer/wire cutter combo scissors, bonsai book and a quick start guide.

Level 2 Kit - This kit includes everything necessary to grow your bonsai for the first 3-5 years.  Level 2 kits include the seeds of three bonsai trees, plastic germination pots, professional germination soil, plastic bonsai training pots, plastic bonsai drip trays, premium bonsai soil, natural based bonsai fertilizer, bonsai book and a quick start guide.

Level 3 Kit - This kit includes everything necessary to grow your bonsai for the first 5-10 years.  Level 3 kits include everything in level 2 kits plus some starter wire, pruning shearer/wire cutter combo scissors and a soil scoop.  The plastic germination pots were replaced with a 6 section mini greenhouse.

Please Note: Finished Bonsai and Round Bonsai Pot Not Included.  Extra seeds are provided as not all seeds will germinate and grow - this is just nature.  Each batch of seeds is tested prior to shipping and germinate at 80% or higher.  Many factors can contribute to seeds not growing or plants not making it.  Superfly Bonsai is not responsible for seeds that do not germinate or plants that die.  We have taken every precaution possible to help you be successful with your bonsai kit.  To help with seeds that did not grow or trees that died, we created a seed replacement pack for $3.00 plus shipping to give it a try again.  If no seeds germinated, you did something wrong - likely a temperature problem.  Find the replacement seed pack HERE.

Ask a Question
  • If I order the Level 1 kit, how long would it be before I need the additional supplies in the Level 2 kit?

    You could get away with the level 1 kit for 4 or 5 months before you need to transplant.  You can transplant into 5 gallon buckets or any other container with holes.  The tree will not be able to survive in the little pots and will quickly fill the pot with roots this time of year.

  • How long to grow from start to the tree in picture (approximately)

    That black pine is in the National Bonsai Museum.  It would take many years to start from seed and end up with a tree like that.  The problem with bonsai is that their growth is stunted so the age of a tree is tough to pinpoint.  I would guess that tree is 50 years old.  To get a tree that size it would take 10 - 15 years in a large pot or in the ground.  You would then need to cut it back and develope it into a bonsai over another 5-10 years. Wisteria and dawn redwood both grow much faster.

Plants & Tree Shipping:
We ship bonsai trees and plants from either our parnter nursery or our in house nursery depending on the tree.  We may limit when we ship trees to help limit their exposure to extreme environments.  For example we may not ship if it will cause the tree to sit in a truck over a weekend or holiday in very low temperatures or very high temps.

If we are shipping from our Harrisburg, PA location, the tree may arrive via any carrier, but usually UPS or USPS.  Time in transit will be 1-2 days in the northeast, 2-3 days in the southeast, 3-4 days in the midwest and usually 5 days for the west coast.

Trees are shipped in custom boxes made just for shipping trees.  Sometimes we wrap the pot and soil in plastic to prevent it from spilling out in transit.  Many times we use packing peanuts as they have proven to be very reliable in keeping trees safe in shipping.  If a box is noticiably damaged, please take pictures prior to opening.

Please Note:  We do not ship plants and trees to California
