I think I broke it
To grow a bonsai is to cultivate the essence of a tree in miniature. Take your time and enjoy the calming atmosphere. Explore the possibilities and share what you find with the community.
- Grow bonsai trees of many shapes and sizes, guided by mouse or touch control.
- 25+ leaf varieties, 10+ wood colours and 20+ pots means endless content to discover.
- A restful score and ambience carries you through a meditative journey, interspersed with dynamic piano improvisations.
- Take photos of your bonsai trees in resolutions as high as your screen, save them in a fully lossless PNG format and use them as your desktop backgrounds, share it with your friends, print it out and stick on the fridge, email it to work colleagues or simply fill up your downloads folder and never view them again. We literally have no control over what you do with the photos.

That is a shame - please hand over your bonsai badge to the superintendent next time you're at the station. Take a few weeks to think about what you've done here. <3
Nothing better than a house on a cloud <3
Hey, I just saw this on coolmath games, i was wondering if you gave them permission to use it? Also i love this <3
Hi! Yep they reached out to us for permission - we even developed a custom version for their site, with some unique pots and leaves :D but we appreciate you reaching out to us about this!
Had a blast
Thanks! You've made my tuesday morning with this creation :)
It's amazing! I love playing with the leaf color of my tree. Really beautiful and destressing game, thank you! ❤️🌸
the colours, the shape, the mood! this is beautiful. we're so glad it helps you to destress!
When I feel down, I will look at this and get better. :)
2 regards in the form of feedback;
1. The so called "ficus palmatum" is what i only could imagine really supposed to be "acer palmatum"; Japanese maple
2. Deadwood feature? as in shari and jinning
oh and here are some new creations
only thing i can suggest, you could add button to change background color, sometimes it’s too bright, white leaves against white background. so it’s even better when taking screenshot 🎨
Thanks for the feedback :) we're glad you're enjoying Bonsai Builder. We hope to come back to it someday soon with changes like this one.
it was a bit tough to get an interesting shape, but here’s something 🤍
Literati style... Juglans? I've never heard of this tree eventhough I do bonsai IRL...
Anyway I love this program it's such a stress/anxiety relief. Much love to you developer!
I just searched it up and turns out juglans is the scientific name for the walnut family! The more you know...
i think i unlocked a secret color or something :0 very pretty
I... dont know. it looks kinda cool i guess
There's no standard for coolness we measure against here except whatever you think it is. Thanks for sharing this with us :D
My friend :>
This one seemed deserving of being uploaded...
obviously there are better trees than my tree but I'm still proud :) Great game!
Thanks for sharing! If you're proud of what you make then I think there can be no better tree.
Kinda sorta managed to take a pic before the foliage started to grow...
Anyway, here's a tree with an amazing winter image imo :-)
LOVE IT OMG I WISH I COULD SUPPOURT BUT I DONT HAVE A CARD OR PAYPAL BUT THANK YOU SO MUCH <3 <3 <3
Your enjoyment of the game is all the support we could ask for - don't feel bad about it! Thank you for your comment.
ISnowman looks at the tree. He approves, but not really.
BWABABJSBAHHAHAHA WHY THE HELL IT LOOK LIKE THAT - it seems there is a glitch in the system :thinking_emoji:
I did Ikebana for a year in university, this really talked to my soul in a similar fashion. Very good work, I'm glad I found this gem.
Your game is beautiful! Thank you. Played it in mobile browser, will it be available as Android app?
Thanks for the kind words. We're still looking at options for the future, probably Steam first, but keeping doors open past that!
started playing this at 12:00, accidentally stayed up till 2:00 am... thank you for making such a fun and relaxing game, i really love it
Well thanks for that comment! We're glad it captured your mind and took it out of time for a while.
Look what I made

I love this! The music is great and the animation is cool! Wonderful job.
I made a little kitty bonsai
my stick man
This game is so good here is my bonsai called "Fire bird"
left this running to go do homework, came back this
I call this “Frostbite”
I think I found a rare color

loving this game plus, it really relaxing and helps wind down, I mean seriously I love making little bonsais like this guy!
Happy to hear it's helping to calm and relax - that was definitely one of our intentions. What a great bonsai as well!
