How Often Should You Water an Indoor Japanese Juniper?
Junipers (Juniperus spp.) include a variety of low-growing ground covers and large trees. These conifers do not produce cones, alternatively they grow fleshy, fruits equivalent to berries. The younger foliage is small and prickly, although the mature foliage consists of small overlapping scales. Both types of foliage could appear on the very same plant. Japanese Juniper (Juniperus procumbens) is a ground cover that grows outdoors in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 4 through 9 or indoors as a bonsai tree. Indoor Japanese Junipers call for satisfactory water, fertilizer, light and pruning to sustain their form.
