What’s the Best Juniper Bonsai Tree

Did you know, for the best rare juniper bonsai tree genus is made up of about 50 to 70 different indoor and outdoor species within the cypress family. They are beautiful evergreen and colorful coniferous trees or shrubs, which are a very popular design for Bonsai. Junipers can have two types of foliage, needle-like, and scale-like foliage.

Do junipers make good bonsai trees

I have a Juniper I’ve had for 13 years grown indoors under lights year round, though I now put it on the my new deck for four months in summer…. It has fine small needles, probably Japanese or common juniper, not like the ones you have there…. The typical one they sell.

Are juniper bonsai good for beginners

I’ve kept a juniper indoors under lights for 13 yrs and counting. Recently I started placing it outdoors on my new patio in summer. It’s the one with tiny compact needles, I think Japanese. They need lots of water and humidity trays. I’m in Toronto so the winters are too cold outside, but the Netherlands is fine outside in winter.

Juniper Bonsai Care guidelines okay what we have here is uh feminine juniper this is the nastiest juniper to work on and what i would plan to do was i’m just gonna go with the before and after shot uh it’s a very painful process and i’d rather not be taping uh individual trees going ouch ouch ouch or sometimes you know kind of nasty words anyway so i just wanted you to see what’s up front i know that uh families are watching this program and i should not be cussing so here are the trees well actually there’s two more in behind these that’s already done but these four i’ll get it so that you’ll see it’s really painful oh yeah we’re still in kind of the summer heat but today’s cool so what i have to do is to wear a long sleeve because these will poke right through your skin nasty okay i’m back in the studio i just got finished pruning the four well Identify your Juniper species i’m only taking 10-15 minutes to prune these things so that yes it needs a lot more detailing but what i wanted to do was to make sure that you could see the the very basic elements that i always stress the root flare the movement and taper and all these will have that what’s lacking is detail so somebody that are really into it this will be more like an intermediate advanced stage probably spend another two three hours some people maybe even a whole day getting it so that it looks very precise that’s what i don’t do because it takes forever for me to get done cascade outdoor full grown but yes so you’ll be seeing uh four in detail uh and just look for the basic elements that how i always stress the root flare the movement and taper and they will all have that all those features okay so as it comes around the front i’ll say i’ll put the next one on i think the front is coming around about right there so this represents 10-15 minutes of pruning on my part like i was saying i wanted to make sure that there was my basic elements that i always emphasize the roof flare which is down by the ground line right and then the movement that defines our style and taper and so those are the things that i always try to achieve in my material i believe this is the front but as we turn this thing uh you might find another part that might be better well that’s still okay because this is still in a material state what this needs is a lot of tender loving care Wired Trained Juniper Bonsai well if i wanted to make this so that is start to become uh show ready i would have to spend another two hours on it and most of you will be spending most of half a day or rock small garden full size beautiful leaves longer get it all detailed out and uh well you know for me it’s impossible because i have so much material okay so anyway here that might have been the front but i’ll have it come around a little bit more and i think this is going to be the front i think so i think this one here actually i was thinking about um the gin i was thinking what if we take this part maybe down to about here and jenna you know if we just gin a little bit it just doesn’t make a statement so it should be at least this far or even a little bit further down then it becomes a attempt rather than a mistake well those are the kind of decisions that whoever buys this can make jen has not been my natural form it’s kind of difficult for me to actually kill off a nice light part but i was looking at this and it that might work on this tree okay looking at this one here it has a good roof flare and then the movement and a very natural taper to me that’s a very essential for any bonsai is to have those three elements now what’s lacking again is the detail so well like i’ve been saying i’ve been only spending 10-15 minutes to get these to this point so another two three hours on my part will get it much better and some of you will spend half a day or even day getting to exact point okay here we go i think that was the front although coming up could be the front well a lot of these you know well let’s just say that it’s better to have two good fronts than no front at all i was thinking with some modification this could be the front now like i was saying i’m doing these very rough so that whoever buys these will make it their own right so there’s a lot of work to be done if this was to become a great bonsai but at least the three elements that i always try to emphasize is their roof flare taper and movement the movement is actually the same as style so this is considered a informal upright and i think somebody put a detail on this thing in a year two years it would be a great uh showpiece okay this is the fourth it’s it has the same thing you know root flare movement and taper uh this one could actually be shortened a little bit it might be a little bit on the taller side okay so let’s spin this around but i was thinking perhaps it could be brought down a little bit it give more emphasis well you see all this brown that was because it was shaded with all these tall little branches right uh so if you spend the time and flicking these off these will go away but that takes time that’s why i’ve been saying that if you could spend another two three hours on this minimum then i think you’ll have a great piece well today i’m shooting in the middle of august so i can’t prune this too heavy yet if it was early in the spring we could cut this back to nothing almost and you see me do that on some of my femina bonsai so yeah what we’ve been working on is the femina juniper common name needle juniper and trust me it is painful so i think that’s a could have been the front but i i was thinking what’s coming around the corner should be the front so anyway um these only had 10 15 minutes of pruning so it’s a little bit rough but anybody coming to look for something like this they’ll be into intermediate and advanced so as long as they could see these trunks the way it is i think they should be able to figure out what to do with the rest of it okay what a nasty way to start a sunday morning but i got this done so the four that we looked at before shot and then you can see behind there there’s two more so i have six of them that i did this morning and that’s why i have to do it like quick 10 15 minute per tree a little rough but now people could see the potential on these and so you’re intermediate or advanced and like the work detail this is the uh selection you have i think i have a few more i’m not sure whether i’m going to do it today or not but i have these in a 15 gallon they’re massive and they’re really painful well anyway this is a hero saying goodbye i’ll see you again real soon in another chapter so this was the femina juniper common name is needle juniper and trust me it has full of needles it really does hurt okay see you again real soon
