    Repotting Juniper

    If anyone needs helps or pointers on the dead portion of Bonsai, lemme know! I specialize in embalming. I won’t touch mine again till she’s growing then. Thanks

    Can you do basic wiring the same time as the root work?

    Cascade juniper....if it lives

    Yep that’s me, how are you? Do you think I should just cut those off to the right now or wait till its growing again? Does it matter?

    Cascade juniper....if it lives

    Hopefully this one keeps going and surprises me with something nice. That threads very educational, I may try to grab another and do more of the stuff from there. For this one, I think letting her live for a bit is best- but advice is welcomed!

    Cascade juniper....if it lives

    Thanks for the tips about it timing (you’d think I’d have learned this by now, somehow it’s a hard concept for me) and the leaning. Once it lives I’ll try to adjust that

    Cascade juniper....if it lives

    Hopefully bending it so much doesn’t kill it! I left a lot of the foliage on hoping that with more it will survive....and because if a big branch dies I can use a different branch. But hopefully it makes it. Yea Texas summers are brutal, and have killed my trees in the past so hopefully I...

    No more wire on procumbens?

    I think the quote more implies that the importance is that the creator is satisfied. Either with what will come or what is already there. Most art doesn’t grow. Bonsai is art. Whether you see the beauty that is presented , or the beauty that will come is a risk the viewer takes

    I said a goal difference and opinion difference. Same way we make good new pizza

    If the practice produces the desired tree it is the perfect practice

    I’ve found you get this turn in young branches but not old. Not that clipping will give those results if you’d want them in your lifetime

    Some junipers that will be thrown out - need advice

    Take em!!! I’ve asked a hospital that shut down if I could could take a juniper off their lot, even offered to replace it with another or buy it and was angrily turned down. Ones like that are cool lookin and fun, but not always given. Nothing to lose! Good luck!

    Cascade juniper....if it lives

    I made this one tonight- my wife wanted a cascade and I pushed this one to it- sorry I know the picture is poor. Background is a bedsheet hanging from a ladder. I was in a very near fatal wreck 8 months ago and tonight my wife said “I’m glad your back into bonsai” because she thought the brain...
