new juniper bonsai ;; foliage pads are upside down ...
I just got a pretty large blue point juniper, chopped half the trunk, trimmed, and am currently attempting to make it into something that can be called bonsai.
Due to the shape/growth of the original tree and after wiring the branches + bending them down, all of the foliage pads are now pointing downward. I'm wondering if the tree will eventually adjust and direct it's leaves upward again? Or will a juniper prefer to backbud? And about how long will this take for a juniper, if ever?
