Root over rock and identification help!

Post  Junig on Wed May 02, 2012 11:13 pm

this is my young juniper that was gifted to me from the Orient Bonsai Nursery in melbourne
I tried to identify it with no luck and want to try root over rock with it , i looked through many sites with no luck on how but i read a book about about bonsai by Harry Tomlinson that showed me how
but i think my tree is much to young for this , what do you think? Sad

Probably not too young (maybe too old because the roots are too woody), but probably not enough root on it to do a root over rock. You'll need to grow it for a while in a deeper-than-wide pot to ensure you have enough small root to shape over a rock.

Junig, read our revised tutorial on posting images. You can find it HERE. For your imgur service you are pretty much following the instructions for Flickr:

Under your image click Get embed codes then over on the pane that appears on the right, click the Copy icon under BBCode (message boards and forums). Simply then paste that into the text pane on your post where you want the image to appear.

e.g.

A word of caution; as your original was a big file, I clicked on Large Thumbnail (it's one of the size options under the embed codes) to get the image the size above. The original was taking up the whole page.

Hope that helps.

Fiona
