I got this at G&G nursery in May one of the 2 weekends /yr they open for retail sales $35.
G&G is a large distributor from Louisville to Cleveland and New England by rail
since they're located along the Ohio River bed and the rail road. Ideal location.

I believe I see the bonsai within here at the base.

It was drying out too fast, very top heavy for such a splendid little size of roots so I decided to do what's best for it.
Things are really cooking, so I didn't want to disturb the roots more than slicing the bottom off at a better angle
and planted it on a 12" tile. I will lift the tree in the Spring and work on the roots at a more opportune time.
(Juniper is a bit heat stressed right now and shedding some inner foliage)
When I lift the tree I will probably put an 18" tile that I didn't have this go round in place of the 12.

Now I need to learn how to do something with the rest of the juniper. Lots to take cuttings from but don't want the hassle.
So I should learn to graft...

Sweet. I purchased a Robusta recently myself. I’ve seen a few others online with well defined pads.
