Juniperus Communis Shohin

Post  sunip on Fri Jan 28, 2011 1:29 pm

Hy Yvonne,

Tony's heated (plant) bed was crossing my mind to.
So three strong points on your way of growing
One -you did this for 20 years, so no drop in long term vigor occured.
Two -yamadory benefit, being earlier fit for styling.
Three - all Trees are stronger in spring.
There we go, is it the female approche?Wink

Dear Sunip

No this is not at all a "female approche"....this is about bonsai.

Kind regards Yvonne

The individual as you shared with us

May I ask one more question, Yvonne... and thank you in advance for the response!
Is this the kind of substrate that you use in general or this is species (i.e. juniperus) dependent?
And also can the cocopeat be replaced by, let's say, pine bark?
What about mixture percentages? Are they also species dependent, I believe, aren't they?

Hi My Nellie

Please ask any question...If I tried it/know, will I be happy to share.

The juniperus does not depend on the cocopeat, it is ph-neutral, and therefor usefull for this type of plant.

I use cocopeat and lecapearl, for plants who loves neutral soil, as it works very well for me.
For small plants do I use more cocopeat, as it hold water very well, and for larger bonsai, I use more lecapearls.
You will find the soil that works for you.
Pine bark is something else, check the ph.

Kind regards Yvonne

Hi,

a bit late but as the saying goes "BETTER LATE THAN NEVER" My Juniper Communis being trained as a Literati photographed in Sept 10. It does look a shade better today and it is due for repotting... The tree was originally 4+ feet tall and the lowest branch was retained and the rest of the tree chopped off. The lowest branch has been made the new leader and this is the result today... Hope you folks like it....



Regards
Ravi

Dear Ravi

It is alive, and that is good Smile
I would feed the tree well for a couple of years, and then take a look again.

Kind regards Yvonne

Hy Ravi,
Youre juniper has an attractive simplicity.
To improve the tree i would wire the middel and upper section now it is still young.
Some subtle movement would enhance the total as i feel.

Thanks Yuvonne,

Shall try and do something along those lines.... And yes I should have said this loooong ago but... Your tree with whose pic you started off this thread with is exceptional. Good to know that you can do to humble material. And to know that this tree made it to the Noelanders is a great affirmation of your self confidence. Keep up the great work!!!!

Very Happy

Ravi

Hi Ravi

Many thanks for your words. I did enjoy exhibit the tree, and hope to have it, and improve it, for the many years to come.
I wonder....is this specie common in India, or do you have a rare plant?

Kind regards Yvonne

This species of Juniper(communis) along with Juniper Rigida (the needle juniper) and Juniper Chinensis are pretty much around in India. The communis and rigida do not do well as bonsai and seem to die for no reason at all. The Chinensis seems to be a stable variety here though they are not available easily. I recently managed to pick up one Chinensis and am yet to do the basic styling. I have also seen California Juniper but it is extremely rare, but it seems to be doing well..

In India I have not seen Junipers in nature. Definitely not in south india. I am not so sure about the northern part of the country - especially the hilly and mountainous terrain..... In higher altitudes of south India I have seen tree like Pine, Azaleas etc in nature in abundance but not Juniper...
