A friend had a green mound juniper bonsai delivered to my home on Friday of last week. After reading some general instructions on caring for this tree and trying to decipher online tips about how to deal with it in the Phoenix heat I started to do the following.
1) I put it outside.
2) I kept it in direct sunlight during the cool of the morning (75-95degrees) and pulled it into the shade during the hotter parts of the day.
3) I watered it daily. (The pot has good drainage holes and is sitting in a drainage tray with rocks.)
4) I spritz the foliage daily.
By Sunday, it was starting to turn brown in some spots. I am not sure if it was too much heat, too much water, not enough water or some other problem. So Monday morning I brought it in the house and put it under the skylight. I figured it would still get sunlight without being "cooked" by the AZ heat. It's now Tuesday AM and it does not seem to be getting any worse so maybe I made the right move.
None-the-less, I need help. Any tips you can provide would be helpful. I don't speak horticulture language so please explain it as if I am clueless. Thanx
