Juniper (Full Cascade) Bonsai Tree 5721, overall dimensions H 12" W 22" D 17"
Juniper, "Procumbins Nana"
Bonsai Care: This is the tree that is most often used for the ubiquitous "mall bonsai". In spite of this bad press, it does in fact make a fine bonsai if it is properly trained and cared for (unlike the average "mall bonsai"). This juniper has a low, spreading habit that makes it ideal for cascade and semi-cascade styles. Specimens grown in a nursery or specifically for bonsai can be used for many styles, but probably not for formal upright. In nature it grows as a small ground-cover shrub. The foliage is bright green.
Lighting: Full sun.
Bugs: Do not spray foliage when watering might invite spider mites just water the bottom soil. Also spray with a miticide insecticide twice every other month as a preventative.
Temperature: Tolerates a wide range of temperatures, including freezing, however, roots must be protected from excessive heat or cold.
Watering: Water when the soil is moderately dry (to a depth of 1/2 to 1 inch) but do not let the soil dry out completely
