Juniper Bonsai Starter

Juniper Bonsai Starter

$25.00

Juniper trees are especially popular choices in bonsai due to their ease of care, variable form, and gorgeous foliage. Junipers have a naturally compact growth habit which makes them well-suited to bonsai growing techniques, and relatively young juniper bonsai can look well-established without much effort.

Plants and pots sold separately.

Bright indirect or direct light.

Allow the soil to dry slightly between waterings, avoid letting it dry out completely, and then water deeply. Ensuring that the bonsai has adequate drainage is imperative in preventing the soil from becoming waterlogged.

No - Can cause mouth irritation and digestive reaction.

Proper and regular pruning is essential to the aesthetic and health of a bonsai tree. For juniper bonsai, pinching back growth rather than cutting back is recommended as cutting can cause the surrounding needles to die off.

Juniper trees can withstand aggressive pruning well but keep in mind that they cannot bud again from any bare tree parts. Always leave some foliage on the branches to ensure ongoing growth. It is best to prune juniper bonsai in the early spring and summer during their active growing period.
