    Juniper Styling -- Apex

    Well finally got around to trimming and styling this juniperus virginiana I bought from Lowe's for $2 back in February. I got him when I first was starting up bonsai and really had no idea what I was doing. I hadn't done anything with him other than trying to keep him alive as he looked rough...

    Will this branch survive?

    Greetings! I am very new at bonsai and definitely need some specific advice. I was wiring a branch and the tip of the wire twisted under the bark and completely removed it as I wound the wire around the branch. I realize my mistake there (should have left some slack on the wire where I started)...

    Browning Tips on Juniperus Chinensis

    Figured I’d post in here to ask. So I had small branches near the apex that was wired up last fall.. Coming out of dormancy these branches were all brown and looked like we’re dying ... 2 weeks ago I repotted this in a mostly pumice substrate with some lava and hard akadama. It didn’t look so...

    Browning on Juniper

    Not sure if this should even be of concern, but I noticed some brown spots on some portions of my juniper. I got him from eBay probably 2 weeks ago. I just rather play it safe than sorry and reach out to those who know probably more. I haven't watered him in about 4-5 days, so I did that to...

    Foundling Juniper (Juniperus virginiana??)

    Hi Everyone, I was walking my dogs through a local park yesterday and came across a downed oak tree. We’ve had a lot of rain and high winds lately. When the oak fell it uprooted some other plants at its base. This Juniper (at least I think it’s a juniper, possibly juniperus virginiana from...

    Itoigawa behaving like a teenager.

    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...

    You be the judge. Blue Pfitzer Juniper

    Sup Nuts. Thought I’d have a little fun with this one. I’ve always done as I pleased in terms of styling, but I thought I’d open the floor on this Blue Pfitzer Juniper I bought for $30. Purchased this one just over a month ago. And all I did was run a few skewers through the dense root ball...
