I have had more of my customers with happy healthy junipers find that about now - from early March through to early May - their trees can rapidly go downhill. It's because of the changing conditions we experience in our homes this time of year and for our junipers, it's a perfect storm.
I'm getting really excited about the idea of finally being able to offer some outdoor bonsai trees.
What I am looking at right now are
Japanese mMples - probably red ones since I've already that that request
Japanese White Pine
Japanese Black Pine
There is what used to be a lovely tiger bark bonsai sitting downstairs that dropped every one of its leaves because I repotted it and then let it dry out- that's called "yer bonsai double jeopardy". (sigh)
Fungus gnats are small flying insects about the size of a fruit fly. Yes they are irritating but don't let them freak out out. In the interest of full disclousure they are almost impossible to keep out the the tropical plant and bonsai supply chain.
