Japanese 'Itoigawa" Juniper Bonsai Starter Tree
The most sought after variety of juniper for bonsai. A beautiful tight soft foliage juniper highly prized as mature bonsai because of it's fine ramification and dense foliage. To get the best growth do not re-pot very often, 4-6 years seems to work well. Never root prune excessively and do not remove more than 10% of the foliage at any one time otherwise it will produce nasty needled juvenile growth.
