For Lucy: Juniper procumbens advice request
I've checked FAQ and found nothing on this so I'm going to ask for your advice. I'm branching out from indoor tropicals to outdoor other things. I bought a very nice Juniper procumbens in a 2qt nursery pot. It is healthy with nice proportions, having many small branches and one long one ready for a cascade style. It has clearly been groomed for bonsai by the grower.
I have just a few questions:1) Will it do well in my soil mix of equal parts organic, Acadama and grit (crushed granite)? 2) I expect it to have many roots, possibly thick and tangled. How brutal can I be with root pruning? 3) Should I first move it to a roomy training pot for a year before putting it in a cascade pot or can I go all out right now? 4) What do you recommend for fertilizer? 5) Anything I haven't thought to ask.
