Thank you very much. The juniper has a lot of brown leaves closest to the trunk and the trunk/branches have a lot of little creamy white bits on them, any ideas
Putting your zone/location in your profile will help people give you specific advice for your climate. They both want full sun (outside!) - brown needles on a juniper can mean many things, it can be natural/no big deal, or be not enough light, or other issues. Overall they both look very healthy though.

Where are you located? You local climate will change the advice people give you. Trees that can grow outdoors near Miami can not grow outdoors near Fairbanks, Alaska.

The juniper is normally used as an outdoor tree, it is not easy to keep a juniper healthy indoors. Though if you are an experienced under lights grower, it can be done.

The other tree is either a ficus, or a privet or ? maybe Fukien tea. These are usually done as indoor plants.

Veracruz, Mexico area?
Or
Torrevieja, Spain?

Either place probably can do both trees as outdoor trees, except for the few cold nights when you get a frost, then only the broadleaf tree will need to come inside.

The junipers would like to have a full day of sun. The broadleaf would probably be best with some afternoon shade, especially in the hottest time of the year.
