Looking for suggestions on what (if anything) to do with my recently (March 16) repotted juniper. My concern is that I may have planted into a slightly too small (width) pot, perhaps too soon. When I water I make sure the water flows out the bottom of the container. It’s possible I packed the container too tight and the roots are not getting enough oxygen as they were used to, as this is its first bonsai container, it was in a plastic container. The foliage has gone from a vibrant dark green to looking dried out. I’m in southwest Virginia, Montgomery County.
- Leave in the container, and perhaps water less or more often (I’ve been waiting for the top dressing to dry)
- Pull it out of the container and back to a plastic container with same soil mix or with something else (wood chips or sphagnum moss)
- Remove all wire (this was put on over winter)
- Something else?
Any suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated, I’ve been very fond of this tree.
