Hello. It must be not a surprise to see people here asking for help. I got a Juniper 7 months ago and was doing good but summer hit and suddenly started to turn brown and dry.
I tried to water it more often but didn’t work and decided to cut some of the brown branches. Also I sprayed it with some tea tree oil and baking soda solution to prevent or kill the fungus (if there is any)
It has black spots and the still looks brown.
But now it seems much much worse. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong or if it’s already dead but my bonsai is in serious danger.
I add some pictures. I would appreciate help! Advices or recommendations since I’m desperate to save this tree.
I never owned this type of tree before, not even a cactus.
im very un skilled. Please someone help me to save it if there is any chance!
I’m in New York area btw.

I fear that it may be too late for this one. From my experience, once they get dry a d loose the vibrant green,they seldom come back. You can try misting the foliage.

Been dead a long time. Buy a fig and learn how to keep it alive. (Piece of cake)

Please don't ever do that again.

Tea tree oil can be used in moderate amounts but some trees respond very strongly to some of the components of said oil.
Baking soda on a conifer is a tree killer. If you're going to use baking soda, make sure you use the potassium kind and not the sodium version. Preferrably on broadleafed trees at dilute amounts (teaspoon per gallon is probably a lot), conifers can rarely handle this treatment.

This tree is dead. Don't feel ashamed, we've all started like this. Skills develop on their own if you keep giving yourself a new chance. Don't give up! The next one will be better, the one after that will even be better, the one after that will probably outlive you.

Welcome to the hobby!
