    Sick Juniper help

    I don’t know why it’s dying. Is it the heat? I don’t think I’m overwatering. Or under watering. I recently started testing with a gauge beforehand to be careful. It’s kept outside. Gets some direct light and lots of shaded light. It’s over 100 degrees out, but that’s normal for my area. Low...

    Happy Accident (Solved A Strainer, Colander Problem?)

    First a quick nod to the father of the "happy accident." Thanks Bob Ross! Everyone knows I love me some strainers. I have been using them since @Vance Wood's patented work turned me on to them about 10 years ago. (Hey Vance, who knew you would pretty much change the way pre-bonsai are grown and...

    Well, folks, here in Brazil summer came with strong and regular 90'sF every day. So I thought "what about defoliating that mallsai I am trying to save"? And believe me, in one week it is surely back-budding like crazy! Plan is to prune and defoliate again in late summer to fill-in the empty...
