I've always been intrigued by the elegance and art of bonsai since I was a teen, and now that I'm in my 30's I realize that I've wasted the last decade not doing any research or even purchasing my first.. until now. I'm the typical excited, over-anxious, impatient, and nervous first time buyer...
Over the last couple of weeks my beautiful tree has been turning yellow and browning at the tips. I've been in constant care for this tree since I got it and now I'm not sure what is happening. Is anyone familiar with this coloring and cause?
I just got this Itoigawa juniper prebonsai from internationalbonsai.com. I plan to let it grow for a few years, but the nursery pot has to go, I live in an apartment so growing in the ground is not an option, so I have a some questions:
A) Should I do root work and repot into a new...
It may be hard to see in the photo but the bottom section of this juniper has considerable inverse taper and would appreciate any thoughts around possible air-layering. I recently saw a YouTube video where someone repotted the whole lower part, air layer and root base in a larger pot which...
One of my junipers, an Itoigawa, wasn't reppoted, hard pruned, trimmed or trashed around for one and a half years.
The only work done to the tree was wiring it by the end of the winter.
It is healthy and growing fast, but...
As you can see, there is a mix of scale and juvenile shoots, and I see...
I bought 2 junipers from a local nursery a few years apart. Both were sold as Itoigawas, however the new one looks very different to the one I got a couple years back.
any help identifying them would be great.
I would need help to identify what's killing my tree.
I purchased this tree roughly a year ago and left it untouched for the most part of that time to first observe it during a whole growing season. The tree was doing GREAT and had vibrant color.
When the tree start growing again...
My itoigawa juniper is suffering, dying - probably already dead - but I have to try. Do you know what could be happening with it? and what do you recommend to do?
I think is an intoxication by excess of Phyton-27.

Does anyone know reasonably priced Itoigawa juniper source in the eu, I live in Ireland and haven't been able to find any places that will sell cuttings or anything to do with them.
Any leads or replies will be greatly appreciated thank you.
I wanted to start a progression thread on this shimpaku I bought a couple of weeks ago (and show it off!) I was actually looking for a nice pot for another tree, when I found this twisty shimpaku. It was the dead stump that really caught my eye.
Hi all, new to the forum. I have a couple of wonderful itoigawa shimpaku that I bought as raw material from Boon way back when. They are now healthily residing in the PNW. Going to do some maintanence pruning this spring and was wondering about rooting the clippings. I've always heard that...
On these Junis, i have noticed that the growing tips seems to be the color the whole trees foliage is supposed to look like, which last season i had the color. Kinda nervous, any help would be awsome...ty
