Question: 1068-5213
I have a 25 year old juniper bonsai that is six inches tall and about 10 inches wide. It is in a rectangular flat pot that is three inches deep and the same size as the plant. I plan to keep it indoors. It has green moss on the top of the soil. Any tips? Dave, Cedar Creek, TX

Mort's Answer:
You probably have a pygmy that has been well trained. Keep cutting back the new growth. You need not fertilize in the winter months. Keep it in one place. It can take cool temps for the winter. It will do well outdoors during the summer in a shaded spot. A light liquid fertilizer can be applied in the summer. You may want to root prune it as well. Make clean cuts with sterile pruners each time that you make cuts. That green moss is beneficial.
