ALOHA AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I am very pleased to report that we had an outstanding record of safe shipping last year with heat packs when necessary. For a customer who REALLY, REALLY WANTED A GIFT TREE BY A SPECIFIC DATE, with her agreeing that it would be sent at her risk, we came up with another innovation with special plant insulation, a double box with a lot of air and heat packs between! Plants arrived in below freezing weather in perfect condition far below temperatures we normally would not ship! I would not want to do it with our older more expensive plants. But we continue to improve!
The new PREMIUM WORKSHOP PACKAGE (at $59.95 + shipping) is an outstanding success and more popular than the earlier break-through INTRODUCTORY WORKSHOP PACKAGE (at $29.95 + shipping). Some customers are ordering "mix and match" of different sizes to earn quantity discounts and more workshops are being planned including one by Jerry Meislik at the American Bonsai Society convention in Michigan this summer.
Even without issuing the Journal of Tropical & True Indoor Bonsai, we've had continued growth of those wanting to successfully learning True Indoor Bonsai. It was great to be contacted by our loyal customers that began with us over 30 years ago with plants still thriving! Our plans for 2016 are exciting and we send all best wishes for a happy, healthy, and meaningful holiday season. ~~~David

INTRODUCING PREMIUM WORKSHOP PACKAGE as the second Beginner Workshop!
(Left) The PREMIUM WORKSHOP PACKAGE features a larger 5 to 7 year old pre-trained tree in a cut-down 4" pot to go into a larger 8"x5.75"x2.5" pot for those wanting to start off with a larger outstanding high-potential bonsai!

This was the 2007 breakthrough that has become the easiest and most economical and successful way to learn bonsai. It has been used to teach bonsai to thousands of beginners.

WE SPECIALIZE IN DWARF SCHEFFLERA! Our priority is for customer success and no other tree can come close to our record of success! First of all it is the most durable and ideal houseplant for bonsai. We've greatly improved the genetic selection and ALL trees have good lower trunk character, multiple trunks, low branches, that make each one a high-potential bonsai! THE DWARF SCHEFFLERA FACT SHEET should convince anyone that this is the ideal starter tree to attain a highly desirable first success! But it also presents a very strong case for also specializing in this tree!
OUR PLANS TO REBUILD THE ENTIRE FUKU-BONSAI WEBSITE!
Fashions change . . . websites become out-dated . . . and the challenge is to retain all that is good and to improve upon it!
THE GOOD: The Fuku-Bonsai website is the most authoritive and reputable bonsai website that is willing and able to help current and future customers. It contains more pertinent information about our specialty area.
THE BAD: The information is hard to find! It's time to edit, reorganize, and time to install a search engine within the website. This is reasonably possible with a detailed editing of all articles, creating keywords, and selecting a search engine.
THE MOVEMENT TO SOCIAL MEDIA! I'm told it's time to get a Facebook page and that it will be an alternative way to stay in contact. We're moving in that direction! ~~~David
MICRO-LOBSTERS! After 25 years, we have rebuilt our core bonsai business and have ended Micro-Lobsters. We held back closing to announce that a new book titled: HAWAIIAN ANCHIALINE POOLS; Windows to a Hidden World! by Mike Yamamoto, Thomas Iwai Jr. and Annette Tagawa is now available.
The authors are great individuals and our main resources in our early days. They ended the book with the sincere hope that the book is a beginning toward a better understanding of the beauty and fragile nature of these pools and the unique creatures that live in them.
I recommend the book highly! ~~~David
