Japanese needle juniper bonsai material.
Juniperus Chinensis rigida . Needle junipers are highly prized and much sought after trees for bonsai cultivation. They are fully frost hardy and will thrive in full sun and a quite windy open position. During the growing season rigida likes regular deep watering, allowing to dry just a little between times. Spending a summer in the greenhouse or poly-tunnel will dramatically accelerate the growth rate of rigida and will significantly speed up the development of dense foliage pads. When growing, needle juniper foliage should be pruned often and not allowed to become long and droopy. Feeding should be light. Repotting should be left until you notice drainage beginning to reduce significantly, normally 4-6 years if using a good soil mix.
Repotting should be infrequent see our Bonsai Repotting Guide
