Juniper Rigida

Post  F. Waheedy on Tue Jul 13, 2010 2:47 pm

Hi Everybody,

I bought this Juniper Rigida a few months ago. I quite like the trunk movement and the deadwood.
The tree stands 16 inches or 40 cm high.

I'm not sure how to go about the foliage. I have no experience with this species.

I'd appreciate if guys could give some of your expert comments / ideas.

Many thanks,

Faisal

Hello Faisal. I've never worked on Rigida before but I think you have to wire new shoots in an upright direction until they harden off, otherwise they will flop. I have worked on other needle style Junipers and recomend you get yourself some surgical rubber gloves as they stop the ouch factor. It really does work.

Hello Will, I've been looking at pictures of similar bonsai also waiting for some more comments by the more experienced people before I decide which way to go.
you're right about the gloves. I only did a bit of pruning the other day and my hands were full of scratches. Get some gloves next time.

Cheers.
