    Twin trunk juniper styling help

    I’m rather new (couple years) to bonsai and I picked up this (what was labeled as) Grey Owl Juniper at a local nursery. It’s a good healthy tree and came already with some wire on it, and I’m not sure the best way to style this tree. It’s a twin trunk at the moment but feels a bit clunky...

    Shimpaku Literati styling

    Two versions of this tree, as it is now and a virtual, taking off the lower left branch. I think it feels lighter and more elegant without the branch, but my concern is with the health of the tree; too little foliage and junipers struggle. Should I jin it anyway and hope for the best? As it is...

    Shaping a Nana Juniper

    I have been working with bonsai for about a year and a half, so I am familiar with many of the basic ideas of how to trim and shape trees.

    RMJ Design Advice

    Hey Bonsai Nuts, Here is an RMJ I was able to repot this year in early spring. I have not designed too many bonsais yet, so my experience in designing is very little. I've decided on two fronts but I really need help narrowing it down. I've marked where I'm imagining where I could possibly...

    Is this unhealthy?

    I can’t tell if this is unhealthy? 1st photo (with my hand) seems a bit more brown and there hasn’t been too much growth over this season. 2nd better growth and seems healthier? I’ve also noticed sap on the floor around the tree?

    Well finally got around to trimming and styling this juniperus virginiana I bought from Lowe's for $2 back in February.

    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...
