    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?

    Struggling Junipers

    Hi all, I have been really struggling with Junipers and I feel like my problem is lack of sunlight, but maybe I'm wrong. Either way, I could really use some tips. My house is kinda in a bad spot for full sun trees and I'm finding this out as our neighbor's tree has grown excessively the past...

    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...

    Bought a juniper from a street vendor...How can I fix this mistake

    I just bought this potted juniper from a street vendor to celebrate our marriage (Wed Oct 21st). He told me to only water once every two days lightly. From what I've read on y'alls beautiful forum is that is wrong and I should water it much more. Can anyone add to this? The soil looks good...

    What is Heavy Feeding?

    Hello Newbie to the site. I have noticed folks using “heavy feeding” when talking about fertilizing pre bonsai and growing big trunks. Can some one explain how often you fertilize and what you use. I live in San Diego so I have a long growing season. I am growing juniper of all kinds Shimpaku...

    Styling advice?

    I picked up this blue shore juniper from the local Home Depot. I may have gotten a bit prune happy but I’ve got to say it is interesting to look at... maybe a bit thin but it should thicken up over time. Any input or advice helps :)

    New Juniper nursery stock - where to begin?

    I was able to get this Junper Parsonii this afternoon. It has an incredibly thick trunk, and a nice natural shape -- though a little big. I have it sitting in the sun, the nursery had it in partial sun and the leaves were a little yellow. It's the middle of summer, so I don't want to repot, but...
