View Full Version : bonsai tree troubles

I received a potted bonsai tree (chinese juniper) for christmas. I looked up as much as I could find on how to care for it on the internet, being the first plant I've ever had. I've read mixed opinions so I just decided to go for the inbetween, which was just to spray it with water daily. no soaking. all the websites concurred about keeping it in the coolest place possible. the collest place in my house is right next to a window, so I placed it there. a problem that has come up is that the area facing away the window, all the leaves have become britte to the touch and break when any pressure is applied. the side nearest the window is still soft, but is also becoming britte like the other leaves. if anyone could help me with this problem, I'd greatly appreicate it. I don't want my first plant to be a failure, heh.

Your best bet is to go to a bonsai link or chatroom about this.
