Juniper Chinensis forest of 5
« on: May 04, 2016, 07:17 AM »
Here my Juniper Chinensis forest of 5, that I started 2 years ago. As mentioned before in another topic, Juniper in Indonesia are placed in rice husk, that makes it difficult when potted in bonsai medium, some of the trees just don't make it. here are the stages. Today I cut all old branches and only left the tips, wiring starts tomorrow, will update ASAP. My plan is to place them on a a slap after the wiring and a rest period of minimum 3 month. Pictures are random.

Today I started wiring the smallest tree of 5, this was also my problem tree where the top rally was deformed and had previous crack. I manage to straighten it up without damage.It took me 7 hours today. The juniper are very brittle and easy to be damaged when small wires go on. I am happy with the result so. There are some branches that not yet line up, but this will be taking care of with new growth and clipping in the future.
