Mountain-Style Mini "Kishu" Juniper
Left untouched by human hands out in the wild, Juniper trees grow and can thrive in pretty harsh conditions. This mini bonsai was grown and styled by Eric to mimic wild Junipers in those mountain settings. This tree stands about 4" tall from the rim of the pot to the top of the tree and sits in a 2.5" diameter pot.
Junipers are hardy, love full sun and can grow quickly under hot and humid conditions. Water daily during the growing season, fertilize regularly. Protect from temperatures below 32 degrees F, like all bonsai. Growth on "Kishu" is shorter and tighter in places with cool summer weather (like high elevation, or coastal).
