juniperis procumbens nana

Post  Guest on Mon Jan 14, 2013 7:14 pm

Hi, I have three juniperis procumbens nana. They look to be in a nice semi-cascade style, with juvinile foliage. One of them is smaller than the others, and its trunk slightly bends in a curve, then a little ways out from the pot. I will hopefully post pics to, but do you think they would have any hope of becoming something nice? P.S: They are about 8 years old.

They're probably a few years less than 8 years old, I'm afraid. At any rate, they're too young for us to make any predictions. I'd recommend that you put them in the ground and let them grow for a couple more years before you consider them for bonsai.

and i would add a couple more years to the suggested couple years...nana's are kinda slow in the trunk thickening department, and ultimately, that will weigh heavily in the long run...dont forget that just because they are in the ground doesnt mean that you cant do some preliminary training along the way...

Hello,
Ofcours this can become something.
This is the stage to get some initial movement in the trunk and branches with some wiring.
But it is best to do it in the spring if you have the tree outside.
When the tree is really 8 years old, bending could be a bit of a problem as the wood will be hard.
Good luck
