However it stayed untocuhed on my grandma's house and she planted it on a big cement pot which can be seen on the first attached picture. This month I decided...

    Help with juniper ID and styling advice

    Hey guys, I was told by the nursery that this is Sea Green Juniper but it didn’t have a tag so I was just looking for a second opinion. It’s in a 15 gal pot and is heavy as hell. Good movement in the trunk but I’m thinking the largest branches are a bit straight and lacking in secondary branches...

    Only gravel, no soil (?)

    Hi everyone, I'm a first-time bonsai owner - trying very hard to keep my first one! I received a Juniper (Juniper procumbens nana) a few days ago. To my surprise, and contrary to most of what I have read, it came potted with only gravel - no soil whatsoever. I contacted the shop who my friend...

    Hi all, For Father's Day, everyone left me alone (just the way I like it!) so I thought I would try a first bonsai. This is my first post here, so I hope the pix come out ok. Yes, yes, I know that some here really don't like Eastern Red Cedar (Juniperus virginiana) as a bonsai. Nonetheless...

    Styling Advise on an Unknown Collected Juniper

    First, yes, I know that the foliage isn't good. Please ignore the color for now. I haven't decided what I am going to do about that yet. I collected this Juniper a couple years ago now and have yet to figure out what to do with it. That probably tells me everything I need to know but I'm not...

    Our Juniper’s needles at the tip are turning brown - is it normal?

    I’m attaching a few photos. Only the tips have started to turn brown. This has been the case for the last 4 weeks and it hasn’t spread and the brown needles haven’t really fallen off (other than a few). I believe I’ve been watering it when the soil starts getting dry (although sometimes it’s...

    Repotted Kishu in 1 Part Akadama, 1 Part Kanuma, 1 Part Lava

    I just repotted my Kishu Shimpaku in 1 part Akadama, 1 part Kanuma, 1 part Lava. It was in 100% akadama. I just wanted to make sure that using the 1 part Kanuma didn't add too much acid to the soil. Is this a good soil mix, or should I repot it swapping out the Kanuma with pumice. I've...

    Juniper foliage question...

    So I haven't messed w/ many junipers, other than a couple $8 dollar ones from Home Depot. I bought this guy at the club auction in September. At the time it was extremely cascading... like straight down, even the foliage pads were vertical. It was strange and I don't know what the owner was...
