It is one of the few bonsai trees that can be placed indoors or outdoors. With the right amount of light and humidity, the Juniper bonsai tree can thrive in any condition.
Grow the plant in a location that receives more than four hours of sunlight each day, and in soil that tends toward dryness.
Junipers prefer soil that is slightly dry, but it should not be exposed to prolonged dryness. It is best to water the plant well, allowing for proper drainage, and then allow the soil to become dry before watering again.
The juniper bonsai tree needs a certain level of humidity for optimal growth. This can be accomplished by misting the leaves regularly and/or using a humidity tray on which to set the plant pot.
Juniper bonsai trees do take well to wiring, but care should be taken so as not to damage the plant. Wire cutters should always be used when wiring is undertaken.
