First Time Bonsai Artist

Post  NemusStipes on Tue Sep 07, 2010 11:21 pm

Heys!

Yesterday I went out and bought myself my first bonsai.

Though I asked the man questions he seemed reluctant to answer anything and recommended that I Google all the info I needed to know....

All he would tell me is that it is a two year old juniper.

Do you experienced ones out there have any advice for me? How should I water it? What kind of pot should it be in? And what soil do I need? Thanks a ton for your time! Smile

Oh my! I just realized how poor of quality that pic was!

Here are some better ones:

Also. I was wondering if this would be a good root over rock plant? I have no intention of doing that yet, but it is just a thought.

Thanks a bunch!

Junipers make good rot over rock plants. We can't see the base (roots) of your plan t, though, so we can't say whether THIS one wold be good for that.

It is a very young plant, though, and that is a necessity for root over rock, which is one of the bonsai types that takes years to do correctly.
